Im currently in the process of confirming my A Level subject choices; Here's what i've chosen:
- Government & Politics
- English Literature & Language (Combined)
- Music Technology
I'd like to become a Royal Navy Officer Pilot, and in need of 180 UCAS Points; I'm currently a B Graded Student,
1) Will the subjects i've chosen get me the UCAS Points needed?
2) Will they be beneficial for a navy career?
3) Are they enjoyable subjects?
4) English Combined, or English Literature (Alone)?
Answers will be greatly appreciated! Thanks

1- The grades you get for those subjects will get you the points, not the subjects themselves [but be careful with the Music, they might not accept it as part of your complement].
2- They won't hinder you, for sure, but beneficial? Maybe. Gov&Politics could give you a greater awareness of the political pressures behind any decisions taking you into action, but nothing major. They'll be as beneficial as you make them.
3- Well, do you like them? In which case, yeah, they'll probably be enjoyable. Personally, I'd hate Music Tech and Law, so I wouldn't find them all that enjoyable...
4- What do you want to do? Which do you think you'll enjoy more and do better at, gaining the higher grades and more UCAS pts?
Bare in mind the cuts made recently and the extra competition for all Pilot slots across the Armed Forces. 180pts is the minimum requirements, other applicants will have more, some will have degrees. You need to think about what will make you stand out as an applicant, why the RN should pick you and then invest millions of pounds in training you.
