    Hi everyone, I'm in year 11 and am going to be making my A-Level choices in January some time, just thought I would see if anyone on here has advice/comments for what I'm thinking of doing!
    At the moment my thoughts are:
    1)English Lit
    2)History
    3)Maths (I know this will be difficult but think i'll enjoy the challenge!)
    4) Probably Government + Politics but perhaps French/Drama?

    To be fair I'm only 100% certain about my first two choices.
    I'm trying to keep my options open as have no certain plan of what career to follow. (However i am looking into joining the RAF either before/after uni)

    Thanks for your time/any comments!

    All of those are very safe choices, with the possible exception of Drama, but it would be fine in conjunction with any three of the others. Maths would definitely benefit you in terms of keeping options open.

    Same as above, very solid. I do Maths, History and English Lit, they aren't easy, but they're more than do-able.

    Thanks for the feedback was thinking of adding G+P because its something I'm interested in but still proves I've got more than one brain cell!

    Don't swap maths- that is a great A level to have
    As for the forth I would probably advise to the one you will enjoy most.

    only thing is .. think carefully, maths is great, but do you also need physics for any of your possible career paths? however that sounds great so far, and I guess the ones you are interested are always good
    government and politics is good .. but is it something you could teach yourself/ read up on in your spare time, or just follow he news?
    Whereas maybe some of the others you would benefit from more by being taught them as an a level.

    I think English Lit, History and Maths are all solid choices. I wouldn't recommend Drama, but French (or any languages) is always well looked upon but in uni and at work.
    You're lucky, you've had longer to think about it :L I had to submit my application already! (I'm also in year 11, see my spoiler for what I'm taking).
