    So, I don't really know what I want to be when I'm older so I want to keep my options broad.

    Due to having to pick from blocks, I'm restricted on what I can pick.

    Out of the blocks, I'll name the A-Levels I'm interested in. Would you be able to help me pick a good combination, please.

    BLOCK A - Sociology, History (if I get the grade), Economics
    BLOCK B - Biology (definitely picking this)
    BLOCK C - Maths, Law, Physics
    BLOCK D - Chemistry (definitely picking this)

    Btw: My current grades are A's and A*'s for maths and science so I'm sure I'm capable of taking them for A-level.

    Thank you so much for helping.

    I think something like Biology, Chemistry, History & Law. Having a range of subjects will really help you when you come to apply for Uni.

    If not History then probably Economics would be a better choice from A, over Sociology.

    Regarding C - any ideas what you want to do after? If you decided you wanted to do something like Chemistry then having Maths or Physics would work more in your favour. If it were more likely to be Biology then really Chemistry is what you need, the others ofc being a bonus.

    What do you enjoy? From what I hear of Law there's a lot of memorising case studies etc. (which personally to me, seems like a pain). I find a hell of a lot of the Biology course can be just memorising rubbish so I guess success in both of those would be how much work you put in.

    I really enjoy doing Maths, plus it's a lot easier to revise/do the work for as the questions can only ask so much ;p
    If you did end up doing Economics instead and decided to persue it further than you'd need Maths.

    I had a friend doing Bio/Chem/Phys/History last year, she seemed to enjoy them all. It's all personal though.

    I would think there's scope to change in your first couple of weeks if you decided you may have made the wrong choice.
