    So I was thinking about my a-levels...
    For my gcse i took:
    Maths - A*
    English
    Triple Science
    Psychology
    pe
    music
    german (3 A*s in coursework so far)
    history

    I either want to do law or accounting and financing, so i was thinking:
    English lang.
    Psychology
    History
    Business/maths

    Is business a good a level, and i didn't take it at gcse - does that matter?? How hard is maths?? Ideas?
    Thanks!!

    I do applied business and it doesnt matter if you didnt do it at gcse-loads of people in my class did'nt. If i am honest with business it is fairly easy to get a good grade but i dont seem to learn and take in much(might just be me).
    Maths is the best a level(is really useful!) but everyone says its really hard but as you want to do finance i think you should do maths!-you can always drop it at the end of year 12.
    History/Business/Maths are good choices. Why not German? You seem good at it.
    If it was me:
    History
    Maths
    Business
    German
    Good luck whatever you choose!

    Maths is really hard at a-level, but by the lookf of it, you got an A* at GCSE, so you should be fine. I would definately suggest that you do it if you are thinking of going down the accounting/finance route.
    Business studies would also be a good subject to do if you are thinking of doing anything to do with accounting/finance. I didnt do it at a-level, but i did it at GCSE. I was told you dont need to do it at GCSE to be able to do it at a-level, so you should be fine. I heard from friends who did it at a-level that its really interesting. To be honest i wish id done it at a-level.
    Psychology is a good subject to pick if you want to do law.

    I think you should pick:
    business studies
    maths
    psychology
    history
