    Ok so I know I keep writing posts about this..
    but in your opinions - is it more important to choose a levels that are 'well respected' for uni or the ones that you could do 'well' in?
    Thankyou!
    P.s I'm stuck between doing the ' traditional ' subjects and the ones Im good at :-)

    I'd always advise to do what you enjoy and/or do well in. What do you want to do at uni?

    well obviously don't choose a-levels just for the sake of pleasing universities which you will hate for 2 years

    but similarly, if you do plan on going to university, please don't choose media studies, photography, etc and just be stuck with a pretty unemployable degree and this debt hung around your neck

    surely you can find a middle ground?

    As with the other posters, try to find a compromise. Do you know what you want to do at university yet? Some courses specify which A Levels are helpful.

    I decided to take the ones that are 'well respect' which was a big mistake. I struggled in them so ended up getting crap grades which didn't get me anywhere. Where as my friend who took easier subjects, ended up getting a*s and is now at Greenwich Uni. Best to do the ones you are good at in my opinion, unless you want to do a really high course such as medicine or dentistry. Other than that, if its your average course alot will just depends on the amount of UCAS points you get.

    An A in financial studies is much better than an U in Further Maths, which was a mistake I made :/

    So go with the ones you'd do well in
