    I will be choosing my AS level choices soon and I have already decided that I will be doing Physics, Art, Business and now I need to pick the fourth one.
    In uni, I want to study either Industrial or Product Design and I'm down to these as the fourth subject:

    English Language
    Applied ICT

    Idk which one should I pick though... My knowledge is solid in all three of them so that won't really change the choice.
    Perhaps I want something that relates to the un courses I want to do and still be respected as a subject... I have contacted some universities and they have told me that Art and Physics are definitely a good choice, and that as long as I have these two, the rest is basically down to what I prefer as long as I will achieve good results so I don't know...

    Can you please suggest me something, or just help me in some way?
    I'm kind of stuck :/


    Do the one you enjoy the most as you're more likely to do better at something you enjoy, or I reckon English as it's a core subject and universities may like this? I'm not sure about ICT as I know our school has stopped ICT for GCSE now and only offers computer science, it might not be as current in a few years?
    btw I'm choosing A levels too!- you seem way more organised than me as I have no clue as to what I want to study at uni...

    English Language is good but I think you should do Literature, either one anyway is seen as a good subject by universities.

    Geography and ICT should only be done if you're thinking of doing either in university, otherwise it's kind of pointless.
