Hi, sorry if Listed this in the wrong place I'm new here, I was just wondering if the a levels I had in mind were a good choice for an ict related career, i was thinking of english literature, business studies, it, and computing.
I have gcses in; English language,English literature, maths, double science, it, computing, geography, religious studies, and two btecs in sport.

These are the best A-levels to choose if you want to do Computer science at a top University, such as Oxbridge, ICL, UCL, etc. They prefer to have both Maths and Physics.
Fair enough, for the average person, though, needing grades of e.g. AAA. What I said would suffice.
Right, I currently have an offer for computer science at university of Birmingham - a university that is very good for the subject. I took maths, English, history. They don't care which grades each gets as long as I hit the offer. So yeah, don't worry too much at all about choosing a level choices solely for the degree you want to do. You may even change your mind, so do what I did and pick something sciency like maths or physics for the uni to want you (both of which are hard) then pick whatever you want.
Thanks for the help guys, I'm going to swap business studies for either maths or physics<br />
I'm really interested in physics, however im not that interested or good at maths ( got grade B).<br />
Also when computing was mentioned does that mean it has to be computing or can it be ict or computing? Thanks.
Maths is seriously one of the hardest A Levels, if you think you won't be prepared to work very hard at it then don't take it. Physics is good tho. But that is probably equally as hard.
Do not take ICT. Computing is what you want out of the two. ICT is a terrible excuse of an A Level.
Yes business studies is a well known doss subject.
