    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.
    hope you can help!

    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.
