    I think you should take Geography, Politics, French and Bio/Chem/Maths.
    Most universities only require Geography for the BSc course anyway.
    I might consider it, but I think I really want to do Philosophy & Ethics as I've always had an interest

    Hi!
    I have just left school and I am due to start my A-levels in September. At GCSE i did English Language(A/A), English Literature(A/B), Maths(B/C), Core Science(C/C), Additional Science(A/B), Textiles(B/B), French(B/B), Citizenship(A/A*) and Geography(A*/A*).
    I have put in the brackets what I am predicted followed by / which then indicates what I think I will have achieved.
    I sort of have a career plan in mind because I know I definitely want to do A-levels and go to univeristy and do a degree and then a teaching degree and be a teacher of Geography.
    I'm literally 99.9% certain I want to do this.
    I have my mind set on 3 A-levels already which are: Geography, Politics and Philosophy&Ethics. But, I am really undecided on my last one, and I know I definitely want to do 4.
    I have been given tons of information on many and been on taster days for many different subjects but I really don't know.
    Sooo... I was just wondering if anyone had an idea what a good A-level is that is enjoyable and academic and also one that may compliment mine already or help me get into university as all my choices are very 'humanity based'. Or an option that helps with Geography etc that future uni's may be impressed by.
    These are the A-levels my local sixth form offer:
    Art and design
    Biology
    Business studies
    Chemistry
    Computing and IT
    Design technology
    Economics
    English Literature
    English Language
    Film studies
    Geography
    History
    Law
    Maths
    Media
    French
    Photography
    Physics
    Politics
    Psychology
    Sociology
    Sport
    Textiles
    Thank you for your help!! From tahlia
    English lit / history.

    No problem. Biology would be the most natural science to go with those subjects as its the most like a humanity of the core sciences. So good choice. Yeah a science isn't necessary to get into Uni but it would put you a cut above applicants who didn't have one.
    Thank you, i think ive decided on biology

    Don't worry, I just thought it would suit your alevels.

    Biology is a fantastic choice and gives versatility to your options.

    I agree with everyone who says to pick a science, it will go well with your options and if you ever did change your mind about geography, it opens up a lot of other degrees. I know you said you've already decided but I thought I'd comment anyway
