    So, I've just chosen my a-level options (Biology, Chemistry, Economics and History) and I was wondering possible about possible degrees that would suit these subjects. I know this seems a bit of an 'open' question but i'm really stuck.

    I'd really like to go in to engineering/computing but... ahh I don't f*ckin know i'd just appreciate a response/some advice from someone who has been in this position.

    A bit of background i'm a very logical thinker, however i'm also academic in other aspects - hence economics and history. I just want to gain an idea of what I would be good at and what I would be happy spending the rest of my life doing.

    Thanks in advance

    You could go into quite a few areas really

    Biology and Chemistry would open up things like:

    -Biology
    -Zoology, biochemistry, biotechnology, biomedical sciences, microbiology, genetics, botany, marine biology etc.
    -Pharmacy, pharmacology, physiology.
    -Veterinary medicine, dentistry, medicine (not sure if you'll be limited with two sciences though)
    -Physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing, midwifery.
    -Psychology, neuroscience.

    Then of course, economics will open more arts/humanities courses such as economics (you may be limited without maths though), history etc. There are also plenty of degrees that don't require specific combinations like law, anthropology, archaeology and so on

    Or, alternatively, you could combine two of your subjects in a degree (I'll be doing history and biology )
