OK so I just moved to UK from Iran . I'm 17 and I have to start my A-Levels here although my studies in Iran where far beyond A-Levels.
So in Iran I use to study in Maths and Physics major including Chemistry and many other subjects.
I also got accepted in literature school olympics .
I was good at maths and at my studies but I was never the best . specially with the strict school that I went to . and I also never loved maths. I don't have any feelings about studying for engineering .
I think I love arts. but first of all , I'm not sure I have any talents in it . I was never the best in arts either . for example drawing . Secondly everyone says there is no future and jobs in it .
I also love literature but my first language is farsi . I'm sure I cant be good in English literature . plus , there is a big chance I would only be a teacher after going for literature .
So it only leaves engineering and science .
Despite the fact that I'm completely numb about it , I need to choose a major for my university to choose my A-levels for it .
I don't know if its gonna be physics or computer science or whatsoever .
and I dont know what courses should i pick for my A-levels .
I'm really confused here . and I'm afraid if like 30 years later from now I look at my life and realize I've been doing something that I never loved for my whole life and been missing out .
I did research on all of the majors but I still can't choose.
I really need help.
I have absolutely no idea what to study for my A-Levels. Watch

Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English Literature may suit you well; I'd also recommend taking Further Maths to AS/A2 as well. This will leave you open to many careers in engineering, computer science, and other desirable fields.

Look through the course content and see what interests you. Sometimes college`s hold taster sessions for subjects as well. If you have a career path in mind, then choose subjects related to that. I didnt know what I wanted to do, so I just chose subjects that interested me for a level, and by the end of 1st year, I know what I wanted to go into
It would be good to have a maths subject in there, as maths is used in every aspect of life. I did Statistics on its own as the college thought it would be easier for me than Maths with Stats based on my GCSE grade
