    I want to go into science based career based on chemical engineering or into: chemical, pharmaceutical and chemical engineering sectors.

    Are these the right A-Levels to choose:

    Maths
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Economics

    Is St. Dominic's in Harrow a good sixth form college, especially in the science and maths department (this is for any former students that have been there recently)?

    Thanks

    Man i wish i was in your shoes again, its seem so exciting when i was choosing my A levels.


    I wished chosen biology instead of film studies.

    well it seems that your choices are well very science based, it depends what part of science you want to go into for university, but also what you most enjoy, if your still clueless then maybe its worth seeing a school or connextions advisor.

    You sound like a smart person, i wish i was smart but sadley academics are not my strongest points....art is though...

    when you mean art, do you mean painting and drawing.

    My teacher was forcing me to take it. I am very good at it, however i hate it- you have to spend ages on it.

    Do you for A-levels get a lot of coursework. Do you enjoy it- or regret it at times for taking it!

    If you want to go into engineering, I'd suggest perhaps taking physics or further maths instead of economics or biology.

    When I was researching into doing Chemical Engineering an undergraduate told me about 90% of the modules were physics based and only 10% chemistry. e.g fluid mechanics, thermodynamics solid state mechanics etc. But obviously they teach it from scratch and just want people to have maths and either physics or chemistry. But if you're seriously considering a career in this area then you should definitely do physics! I would say biology is least relevant unless you are looking at processes involving the environment otherwise I would say economics! But definitely ask some that does it what its about because from what I understand there is an awful lot of design of chemical plants etc.
