What can my friend do with these A-levels? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Just asking on my friend's behalf as he does not have access to a computer atm.

    He's having a dilemma on what degree to study at Uni.
    He has taken these A-levels : Economics, Business, IT and Graphic Design

    Are there any degree's out there which can get him a suitable job, as 3 of those subjects are considered as "soft".

    Thanks for your help

    The A levels don't necessarily have to link with what degree you choose, a lot of degree's aren't even taught at A level. He can apply to study what he wants lol it's up to him, not us.

    If he's not sure what to study maybe he could try the Stamford test which can be found on the UCAS site. It'll give him an idea of what sort of subjects are out there that he could do and would be suited to.

    I think he was just looking for some advice?

    If he picked up Maths, even at AS- it would open a lot of doors. As CompSci and Economics courses usually want Maths to AS level (at the VERY least), top unis usually want full A-level.

    Right now I could only probably suggest something like Business or Management.
