    Hi everyone

    I'm taking my GCSEs next and just thinking about careers and A levels. I don't know at all what I want to do at all - not even whether I want to go down arts/humanities or science/maths routes.
    The subjects I'm taking at the moment are (with predicted grades):

    • English/English Lit (A*)
    • Maths (A-A*)
    • Statistics (A-A*)
    • Biology (A*)
    • Physics (A)
    • Chemistry (A*)
    • German (A-A*)
    • Latin (A*)
    • Music (A*)
    • History (A-A*)
    • ICT (A-B)

    The only subjects I know that I definitely want to drop are physics, german and ICT. All the others I am in two minds about.

    Is anyone in or been in the same situation as me and has any advice?
    (I know this is quite a generalised question - sorry!)

    Because you don't what to take I'd take English language+literature (combined if they do that), maths, a science and then as your other option if choose between another science, history or music - these combinations don't prevent you from doing much

    I'd write down the five jobs you could see yourself doing and look at requirements and are what you want to do e.g doctor most universities (and all the top ones) would like maths, chemistry and biology

    Hope this helps abit
