    Respectable? No but they aren't exactly media studies. What grades are you predicted for GCSE and what university would you like to go to?

    Of those I think classics is the most likely to be respected. Why not replace business studies with economics and ICT with computing?

    Try to avoid Business Studies and Sports Science. For Business at university, a more literary subject may suit a lot more. Could you take Economics or maybe something like English, History or Geography?

    Languages are also good.

    For Computing - try Maths or Physics?

    Business Studies is not as easy as people make out, you have to do stuff like double entry book keeping which is stuff qualified accountants to. Its lot more vocational than somthing like Ecomonics but business studies may be more usefull especialy if you want to setup your own business. I learn't a lot form it. Ecomnics is more respected but a lot of places don't do it.

    As for ICT well its easier than computing and computing is more respected, again however a lot of places won't let you study computing.

    Computing tends to be more for science based people and it can get quite mathematical, having said that I often help my sister out on hers.

    Do you want to go university if so what do you want to study?

    Actually double entry is pretty easy, A-Level accounting only covers it in half a module but it lays the foundation for the rest of the course.

    Thanx for the advice but they don't do Economics or Computing in my school.History is like classics so I don't want to do it if I'm already going to take Classics. I don't like maths or physics.
    For gcse's I am predicted
    Business Studies A/B
    Classics A*
    ICT A/B
    Sports Science is a new subject

    I think I should take these because I think I will enjoy them.

    I have heard so many people do Sports Sciernce at Uni so it must be a respectable subject.

    It would be best if you add Media Studies and Psychology to say ICT and Business. Then you will be doing four really hard, well-respected A levels that will stand you up for the rest of your life and will probably get you into heaven (especially Media Studies, which is really really well-thought of).

    They also don't do Media Studies or Psychology.
    Even though my school is one of the top grammar school they have a limited number of subjects.
