Importance of A level Choices... watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm in year 11. I have actually selected and entered my sixth form application to my school already but I have now, briefly re-considered my choices.

    I have always thought I would like to do economics or business at university like LSE or Oxbridge. I do enjoy business studies and have always enjoyed making money, then again who doesn't.

    So I chose my A levels I liked but also so they suited economics/PPE/Business at Uni. I eventually came up with the choice of Modern History, Spanish, Maths, Economics.

    During my decision process I did consider taking philosophy, which is my reserve A level, biology and chemistry.

    My current change of mood may be a flitting feeling, but what if I start/finish my A levels and decide... "Hmmm I want to study Quantum physics, or genetics, or physical chemistry". How would I be able to if I haven't studied the sciences at A level?

    Just quickly retyping all my possible subjects that I would consider taking for A Level...


    It is late If I did decide to change, but to be honest... I think this is higly important since it will have a large impact upon my future career.

    Could anyone offer advice about this? Anything and everything would help.

    To let you all know, I've always been good at sciences, I love to read about philosophy, history of thought. I have been good at maths since I was young and lastly I love to speak and learn about spanish! AHHHH!

    What about:


    If you feel up to it, you could do something like physics/philosophy/biology @ AS or do another A2. You're choice really.
