    For a levels I am planning to take
    Art, Physics, Maths and maybe (Textiles or Graphics)
    I am also considering Chemistry instead of Textiles or Graphics

    My predicted grades for GCSE Art is A, Physics A Chemistry B/A and A for ICT
    I have no definite career plans for the future. These are just the subjects I enjoy and I am good at.

    Do you think this is a good combination? Any advise.

    Hi!
    if you are unsure about career choices, then keep your options open enough to choose later on, but not so open you are not 'specialised' enough in whichever career you eventually choose (if that makes sense!)

    Just remember, art is a lot of work! but if you enjoy it, go for it, it also shows you are well rounded.
    Physics and maths will open a lot of career choices for you.
    Chemistry will be very hard, and whilst you've got good grades for it, it is preferable to be a strong a/a*, so that you can cope well- bare that in mind. Although, it will help you get into a lot of careers e.g. engineering, science, maths etc.
    If you feel you will enjoy textiles or graphics more, then by all means go for them. If you are doing it for enjoyment, have you considered keeping them as hobbies?

    Hope this helped, sorry if I confused you!

    I would go for: Art, Physics, Maths and Chemistry, because if you change your mind, it would be easier to change to textiles or graphics

    If you're looking to apply for top universities for an academic subject then having Maths and Physics will work in your favour. Physics gets so much harder at A Level, as does Maths so be prepared. Art and Textiles are both considered to be lesser subjects by the top uni's so it may hinder your application.
