    I've already chosen three A Level courses I want to do but the college says you have to pick four and we can drop the one we like the least in the second year. I've chosen Graphic Design, ICT and Photography, I was thinking of doing either Business Studies or Media Studies, as a career I would like to be a photographer and I'm not sure which A Level would help me so help me?

    In secondary school, we had to do 2 GCSE choices of our own (I picked Sociology & Fine Art) and a BTEC course, I picked Business Studies (Only got a pass, got bored of it ) and obviously I have never studied Media Studies before.

    I don't know whether my opinion would be of any value to you as I don't do any of the subjects you're interested in, but I think that Media Studies might be helpful if you're looking at a career in photography as it can probably teach you a lot more aspects of that industry than business studies can

    Most photography degree courses will probably expect you to have a background in art, so it would be good to do that if you can
