    Hi. Ive got my alevel interview coming up so need to finalise the subjects i want to do. At the moment i'm thinking:

    Maths, Economics, History and Chemistry

    Im worried about whether im limiting job options for myself, as at the moment i don't really have any idea as to what i want to do so would like to keep my options open.
    Im also slightly put off about chemistry as although i achieved an A* in it my school do the Edexcel modular (double gcse) exam board, so we aren't really taught the subject very thoroughly. I am taking a separate physics GCSE so i leave school with 3 sciences. so im also thinking maybe i should do physics instead of chemistry.. or would two sciences be better instead of taking history.. as you can probably tell im CONFUSED..

    please help!

    i think those are good choices and leaves it nice and open for you to do lots of things - ecomomics, science, history, maths, law, medicine...

    Thats a fairly good combination. Pick your strengths not what you think could be easier. Thats the common road to mess ups and regrets.
    If you like the subjects you've chosen so far, you'll learn to go from strength to strength. Don't worry about the knowledge factor. It will be dealt with in the first few months of AS

    Physics is better than Chemistry for keeping your options open, there are lots of degrees which require physics (like most engineering degrees) A-Level but relatively few which require Chemistry.

    Yeah but Physics is a pain in the ass.

    Outside of physics and engineering what degrees require physics?

    Chemistry is the broader of the two disciplines, it allows you to study a borad range of science degrees as well as allow the option for medicine.

    So would medicine be an option with maths and chemistry? I was under the impression you would have to take biology aswell.
