I take biology sociology maths and btec textiles and I was wondering what potential I have to do with these subjects and what can I become?
Maths is my strong point and I have good grades in the other subjects.
I am struggling finding information on the Ucas website as it is confusing.

Are you planning on taking them all at A2? If you take biology or maths as a degree you can go into various fields of research or teaching. Research in biology can vary from developmental, evolutionary, genetics, immunology, molecular cell biology... theres a lot. Sociology degrees probably don't have many direct careers attached... but I'm not sure, so don't take my word on that. Have a look on the prospects website, they have a lot of job descriptions, maybe enter subjects that interest you and see what jobs stand out to you and what degree you need. Maths is always a good A-level to have

Sit down with a couple of Uni prospectuses and read some course descriptions. Think about what appeals to you about them - and what doesnt.
If you are considering science, do you want to do a subject that is 'straight science' or something more applied, like 'science with people' (ie. health sciences)? Dont forget to check out course subjects with unfamiliar titles - Development Studies, Forensic Science, Anthropology, Criminology, International Relations etc etc.
Dont worry too much about 'job' at this stage. Find a subject you are really interested in knowing more about. The job will grow from there.
PS. You dont *have* to go to Uni as soon as you leave school - or even at all. Dont make a panic decision thinking 'I've got to choose something' - you dont. Have a look at http://www.notgoingtouni.co.uk/ for other ideas about what to do next.
