    If you're wanting to do something mathsy, I'd advise you to do further maths, as it will a) help you get into uni and b) help you at uni. Or, if it's too much maths, do a subject like chemistry or physics, as lots of maths courses prefer students with physics or chemistry.

    BUT if you don't want to do these subjects then don't the most important factor to consider is that you enjoy the A Levels you choose and will work hard in them

    Hope this helps & good luck for the future!
    Thank you very much! this is very useful

    im so bad at science though and wouldn't want a science job haha
    The subjects your doing now wont dictate what job you're going into. Taking maths now wont mean you will do something with maths. Most unis want physics and maths. For degrees that don't even require Physics for instance Economics.

    I'm at the end of my first year and would advise you to take these subjects.

    Maths, Physics, Economics, and a Essay based course.

    This will allow you to get into 90 percent of courses out there.
