I've not even thought about sixth form, but my options night is next month!! watch

    • Thread Starter

    Well it just dawned on me today when some of my friends were talking about sixth form/college/getting a job in september (it apears they've got it all figured out). Right so I was wondering if you could suggest to me subject combinations and stuff. I will start by saying i don't know if i want to go to uni, definitley don't know what i would do and don't know what job i want. Here are the subjescts i am taking (have taken) and grades:

    Math: B (no chance of taking A level)
    English : C
    Double Award Science: AA (would consider bio at A Level)
    Tripple Science: AAA (predicted)
    History: A* (predicted, really enjoy and find easy)
    RS: A (predicted, relitvley enjoyable and not exactly hard or easy)
    Drama: B/A (Hit or miss for me)
    Eng lit: B (predicted, so so)

    Just to let you know that I am only looking to take three as i am lazy and barely trust myself with that workload. And I couldnt give a **** what universities 'like' or what is respectable or mickey mouse subject or whatever. Oh and am willing to take subjests not studies at GCSE where posible.


    if i were you 'd take stuff that shows that you are an all rounder.
    an essay subject,
    a science,
    a art(ish) subject,
    and a fourth of your choice (maybe a language?)

    do you know what you want to do?

    History, Biology, & RS (+ english literature if you were to take 4)

    The obvious one to me would be History, you seem good at it and you say you really enjoy it. Perhaps Biology too, I'd steer clear of physics if you don't like Maths. Psychology might be a nice one if you do Biology. So I would consider doing History, Biology and Psychology. Possibly Eng Lit too to go with History if you do decide to take a fourth.

    have u applied to any sixthforms or colleges if not i would suggest u should apply immediately. Around this time many students/ friends probably got places at other colleges some may even have an interview.

    good luck with choices- over the summer holidays i bet ure gonna change ure choices
