If You Were To Turn Back The Clock, Which A-Levels Would You Choose? Watch
I am mostly unsure about philosophy and and maths, maths because Im not sure how hard it is at a level but I need it for economics at uni and philosophy because I don't know if history would compliment my other subjects better or not
( I chose computing, geography and law as my non compulsary GCSEs of that helps)
I chose Physics, Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry. I'm going to be doing Physics at University, so I'd stick with the first three, which are the three I do now in Year 13. Chemistry, however, I didn't enjoy so much, or do as well in as in the others, so in its place, I may have picked IT, Economics, or even English. In that order of preference.
As it says above, If You Were To Turn Back The Clock, Which A-Levels Would You Choose?

Would have swapped English AS for Biology AS.
I really like it because its such a contrast to the sciences. I do WJEC history so we do a British side and an international relations side, for the British side half of the mark is coursework (4,000 word essay) and the other half is an exam question on Peel in power. Then for the international relations side there's no coursework but two exam questions which are worth more marks, one question is on international relations pre and post World War Two and the other is on a Synoptic study of Russia (1895-1995). In all honesty A2 history in my experience is easier than As, at As we had to learn a lot of super different events so there were lots of different questions we could be asked about and the British exam was considerably longer because it was answering questions on sources. But at A2, international relations is a lot more broad, so we basically know the questions (for Russia) will be based on either the economy, war, social policies, and government under each Russian leader, and half of the British side is coursework which you have every chance of succeeding at. So yeah, I like it.
Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computing
If I could go back I would swap Further Maths for French. I don't know why I didn't pick French, I loved it at GCSE!
If I could change them I'd swap biology for psychology and french for textiles
AS Further Maths
A2 Classical Civilisation
A2 Fine Art
A2 English Language
What I wish I had done:
A2 English Lang
A2 Classical Civilisation
AS History or AS English Lit
I wouldn't be doing a third year at sixth form if I had just picked them in the first place and I might've come out of sixth with better grades too! But I didn't, so I blew my shot at doing a law degree at a good uni.
