    Hey I'm new to TSR,Im currently in year 11 and need advice as i need to pick my levels. My GCSE grades are:
    English:B
    Maths:C
    Science:B
    History:B
    Business:A*
    I.C.T:C
    R.S: B
    Spanish: C
    P.E : B
    These grades aren't quite final just summer exams left.

    so business is my strong point and i wondered which a levels would combine well for a degree in economics or Law.I'm thinking of doing History,Law,Physics,Business studies? Thank you.

    Those are good choices, a mix. It depends if you have any idea as to your ultimate goal? Uni, job etc?

    One thing to consider, physics, when you're predicted a C in maths (one of your lower grades)? It depends though, science as a single or double GCSE?

    Well stick with the physics, this will look very favorable for any uni applications, as well as job applications. It will be hard work though, good luck.

    Law and Business Studies are seen as "soft" - so do you have any universities in mind so we can tailor your options to your strengths, but also to the universities' admissions policies.

    You say you're also interested in Chemistry, would you consider swapping that for Law? Chemistry is a stronger subject and will leave your options much more open (and law a-level is not necessary to study law at uni, sometimes they even don't like law a-level!) You already have History which is an essay subject so good for law

    However remember to choose what you enjoy and what you think you will do well in!
