    I would've thought that the best degree course to take would be the subject in which you want to specialise in to teach. I think starting salaries now aren't too bad for teachers....but not entirely sure.

    It really depends.

    Do you have any idea what subject you'd like to teach? If not, choose a broad range of subjects you enjoy.

    If so, perhaps choose to do that subject in combination with ones similar to it, maybe with one subject which broadens your range at AS.

    Graduate starting salary for a teacher is around £18,000 (I think).

    Think of the subjects you might want to trach and check university entrance requirements for those courses so that you can do a degree in them. Fairly well experienced teachers are paid about £25,000 as a basic salary.
