Going back to college to do completely different A levels...yet I'm on a gap yearWatch
I've always enjoyed essay-based subjects, mainly English since I did pretty well at GCSE. So the reason I want to go back to college is to take a set of A levels that are actually worth a damn. Currently I'm aiming at doing A levels that will lead to something like a degree in English, History or politics. So if I were to start college again, I could perhaps choose a set of subjects like this:
The third subject is where it gets slightly tricky. I'm not 100% sure on this choice, but a career towards politics would be interesting. Perhaps someone could suggest a 4th? Some say a language A level is good. I did German at GCSE and got a B, but I've probably forgotten most of it and won't be able to do it at A level, so here's where I'm stumped. Any suggestions would be great, even if you think restarting college all over again is an utterly ridiculous ideas but right now I'm keeping my options open and I'm really not satisfied with my career options right now. I'm perfectly willing to stick out two extra years to get a much better academic education even if they'll be pretty painful. Thanks.
im taking sociology, law and history but i also orginally chose psychology. On reflection, it was a stupid mistake lol
i suggest history as a definate, especailly if like me youre good at english
law is also good, as it is another subject with a lot of written content. im taking politics next year, so in my opinion thats a good one to have aswell. Just dont take general studies because so many universities wont accept it.
How about a science subject, I do Maths and it's a nice contrast to my two essay subjects, so if you could then it would give yoy a nice difference. Economics would go nicely with your subjects too.
If you want another essay based subject what about Philosophy and ethics?
Sociology... (obvs wanting all A's lol)
in good chance of getting into better uni etc...ahhhh
i did really bad in my a levels (bcc) and got into man met uni for psychology i have completed my first year and don't enjoy it and did averagely
i am thinking of going back to college to do my a levels again. do you have any advice on what i should do?
i considered English or English Lit and History also .. both are respected subjects .. but i think to in order to broaden your options, choose Maths instead of Politics, also it more respected subject .. and you may keep Politics as a 4rth a level ..
Which exam board would you choose for History and English Lit?
I was average at English GCSE, but I'm now studying a TEFL to teach it - I'm finding learning from home much better than a classroom setting.
FYI - My A2 were Art, Graphic Design, and Media, very social, creative, and fun subjects - but tough industries.
I'm looking at business studies with Big data to start moving into an area that allows me to be more numerical
