I am going to college soon and I was wondering about how you choose your options.
Are you allowed to choose whichever ones you want or are they sorted into pools? Such as could I choose graphic, art, design and product design? (I'm not just wondering?) Or would you have to choose different a-levels?

It depends on what the policy is at your chosen college/ Sixth Form. At my school we picked four AS subjects, plus a fifth as a back up. On the timetable, these were organised in blocks. For subjects like Maths where they were lots of classes, there were generally no problems, but say there was only one Music class and one Art class who were supposed to have lessons at the same time, you'd have to drop one of those subjects. I'm guessing some places would let you take your stated subjects, but I'd recommend adding some more variety into the mix.Places may also add extra requirements on top of their general entry requirements, for example, that you need a B or higher in a subject at GCSE to take it for A Level.
