    Hi, so currently I am doing my first year of A Levels, I'm doing Geography (Target - A/B), IT (B) and Moving Image (B), but I don't really know what to do after A Levels.

    With the options I have chosen, what degrees would I be able to take, and where would they lead to, career-wise?

    I was thinking of computing, but apparently that degree is a joke, so I looked at computer science, but I will need a maths A level. After looking around, I found out I can do the whole maths A level in 1 year on an evening course at my local college (I got a B (2 marks of an A) at GCSE), would this be worth getting? I was also thinking about picking up Economics for a AS next year.

    So basically my questions are, with my current options, what degrees/careers should I be heading for? And would you recommend getting the Maths A level, and Economics AS? (If yes, where could they lead)

    Thanks

    PS I haven't done Maths since October of Year 11, over 1 1/2 ago.

    Not sure career wise but I study Computing. Its quite hard in parts but thats probably because I suck at Maths. I got an A in the first 40% but now the programming part has properly started and its a lot harder. I wouldn't say its a joke, I was doing ICT at first and let me tell you. That was a joke.
