TSR has been quoted in this Guardian article on choosing A-levels today:
"Why is it so hard to choose A-levels? I've tried it all – reading posts on the Student Room, consulting the National Careers Service, asking friends and teachers – but I end up feeling more indecisive than ever. The more possibilities I become aware of, the further I sink into a metaphorical sea of options. I can't help feeling the planned eradication of January exams and the potential abolition of the AS-level altogether will make things even worse forstudents studying at A-level."
Apparently even after reading TSR posts she still hasn't decided... So I wondered whether we could help her choose her A-levels?
- A-levels that set her up for a good career without necessarily having to go to university (or ones that would allow her to progress to a career in the NHS)
- A-levels that allow her to keep her options open in terms of career paths - so a mixture of science and humanities might be good
- More exams than coursework
What do you think? What approach did you take to choosing your A-levels?

She could take biology, history, a language and chemistry or geography.
I am studying for my AS levels at the moment, I am studying: French, Spanish, Food tech and Business Studies. I just picked the subjects that I was good at and that I enjoyed.

Anyway I want to study English at Uni so chose essay based subjects - Sociology, English LangLit, Psychology and Politics. Wish I'd knew that you only really need to do 3 ASs, cannot bear Politics
