    This is probably the wrong place to post this but, I am picking my A levels and one of the options was Systems and Control. I thought that it my complement my other subject choices of physics and maths (to further go into a job in engineering), so I was wondering what it involves?

    mY PERSONAL experience
    I chose 'systems and control' at GCSE level, and regretted it. I dont know how different the A Level option is to the gcse, but i put a lot of work into the subject and ended up with a D. (averaged an A in all my other subjects). It was poorly taught (maybe i just had a rubbish teacher), not much structure to the course, class size was too large for the amount of equipment we had, we couldnt do any CAD work at home (obvious reasons - noone had the software)
    I'm not an expert and can see that it might be relevant for a job in engineering, but i dont know how respected it is as an Alevel when applying to university. Maybe further maths or another subject would help you out a bit more
