Hi trying to choose alevels and prooving much more difficult than i thought. I want to go into dietetics or teaching or on the health or education lines. (but not a doctor)
I was thinking of doing chemistry, geography, maths, biology and i was thinking instead of biology RS.
Chemistry - I have been told by my teacher it is an incredibly hard alevel and with an A at gcse (im getting a high A atm) it would probably be like a C grade. He said it will also require alot of work and I could potentially struggle at it.
Biology - is my weakest subject out of these im A/B boarder. So she said if i do it it will require much more work than the usual to get a decent grade.
RS- this is one of my most enjoyed subjects. BUT i dont have the ability to write an essay (my english is appaling) seeing as this is an essay based subject is there any point in taking it
I am up to any suggestions even subjects I havent suggested
here are my predicted gcse grades(hope they are helpful)
english language: C
english literature: B/C
geography: A *
Religious studies: A/A*
Home economics (food and nutrition)A

i would say with the RS that you were right about the essay thing. one of my mates do it and most of what she does is write loads of essays so if you can't write essays, i wouldn't recommend it. I know for sure the sciences at a-level are the hardest subjects to do so i'd say you would struggle. i think looking at your predicted gcse grades, the subjects you are looking at would best suit your ambitions. depending on what you would want to teach, you should look at subjects that you currently enjoy and see if you could cope with doing them at a-level and you would like to teach. let me know how it works out for you

no worries and thats good to hear you decided. i know at college within the first couple of weeks of college, if you don't like the subjects you can change them as long as you don't leave it too long. i hope the choices you have made are the right ones
