    Hey all. I'm not really sure what a levels to do.

    I like all of these ones, but I'm not sure what my option are after doing each one. I want to do some sort of engineering

    Option one:
    Geography (drop)

    Option 2:
    Gov Pol (drop)

    Option 3:
    Gov Pol (drop?

    What options do you think I would be able to do, in terms of degree courses?

    Also what do you think would be easier/harder and more useful/less useful.


    I would personally say that your first option is the most useful but also the hardest because they're all academic subjects. Better regarded by Unis though. Also, I'm not a STEM person myself, but I'd suggest you check up on the requirements for engineering degrees. I think, but I'm not 100%, that many ask for further maths.

    With that in mind I'd probably go for Maths, Further maths, and 2 sciences- look at types of engineering that may be more specific to a particular science. biochemical engineering, chemical engineering. Etc.
    Then you can choose which two sciences you want to go for depending on the field that most interests you.

    Make sure you do your research, because the field you want to go into will determine the kind of course, and the subject entry requirements that you will need.
