I am so confused. I don't know which one to do for A-Levels.
I know that Physics is a very respectable subject but its probably also hard (I am predicted a grade B at GCSE) On the other hand is Sports Science easier but is it also respected?
I have already decided to take Business Studies, ICT and Classics but not sure about the fourth subject.
Plese help me

You're definitely going to want to take physics if you want to be taken seriously academically (though I wholly expect somebody to take me up on this). And no offense especially with ICT/business, if you were going to do sports science, perhaps you would consider economics and computing.

I had a flick through a sports science textbook, and it contained some quite good bits on human physiology. indeed, in some places they do in AS sports science, that are in thel A2 syllabus.

Agree so utterly completely with Bono. Do Sports Science if you want a fairly suicidal A-level combination (no offence intended, but no good university will look at you seriously ).

Please consider Economics instead of Business Studies. I took Business Studies at GCSE and although I got an A* and one of the top 5 marks in the country, I wish I had done Latin instead...

Physics! And Economics! And Computing. Then you'll be all set

Agree with a lot of the sentiments on this thread...with the exception that I don't really understand the Computing-is-a-respected-a-level line.

More respected than ICT? Well, yeah, almost everything is. But Computing is still quite low overall. Easy, too.

And add Mathematics to that and you get my current AS Level combination! (although Further Maths soon to add to that! )

Mathematics, Physics, Economics, Computing.

With Further Maths to start soon.

As a scientific subject, it is quite well respected.
