    First i have no idea what job i would like in the future and in a previous thread i decided to choose my 4 A levels i am going to do.
    They are:

    What careers "areas" could i get into with these choices?
    I really like Physics and Computing are there any jobs that would be good for me and that i may be able to do?
    I know this may be a very broad question, but i am very interested.

    Pretty much anything, depending on what your A Level results are like, what degree you decide to do, what degree result you get...

    Cool thanks

    I see that you got a pretty vague answer there haha!

    With those you can literally choose anything you want to do. If you know a fair bit of computer jargon and would like to do computer programming, that seems to be a fairly good career path at the moment. The main thing to do is make sure you do as well in your A Levels as possible, if you can get at least 2 A's out of those subjects most of the top universities will accept you.

    One thing I would say to you is that if you enjoy Economics and/or do well in it and you study maths or a financial degree then it would be well worth looking at going into banking, the scope for salaries in banking is huge.

    I am currently doing Maths and Sport Science at Loughborough and although I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, I have been encouraged by my careers centre to look at internships and placements to enhance my career prospects. I have applied for internships at RBS Barclays and Lloyds, and I got quite far in the selection process without knowing anything about banking whatsoever.

    Having said all that, I would just like to reinforce what I said that if you do as well as you can in those subjects, you can pick (almost) whatever you like at university, and then work towards a minimum 2:1 at uni and you have opened up a world of opportunities for yourself. Good luck!
Is the Big Bang theory correct?
