    im new to this site,
    im in year 11 and like im in the process of picking my a levels for sixth form
    at the moment i think i want to do:
    english lang/lit, ict a level, business studies a level
    and then i think im picking travel and tourism but i was unsure whether to do law

    i just want to know if these are good to pick,
    im not completely sure what to do when im older,
    but im intrested in working in it and businesses
    i wish i could choose media as well.
    are these ok for me?
    i am getting b's and c's in my gcse's.

    They sound fine, however i wouldn't pick media as it is considered as a 'soft' subject for universitys, if thats what you wanted to do after your a level, but apart from that they sound about right, maybe maths or economics may helo too?

    And, with regards to travel and tourisim or law, go for the one you feel you will enjoy and do well at! , it's all about being able to get those grades at a level

    Hope that helps

    Good luck!

    History A level is more valuable than Law A level for studying Law.

    Also, English Literature is far better than Language, and I wouldn't choose media at all.

    Perhaps consider Economics over Business Studies as it is better respected by universities.

    No, IT, Business are pointless and Travel and Tourism are pointless.
