    Hi, so I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, if it's not and there is a better place where I would get more help, it'd be great if you could point it out for me. Thanks.

    So my problem is really stressful, for me anyway. I'm 16 and will be heading to college in September. My problem is that one college, let's call it college A, I would be studying BTEC Extended Diploma in Animal Management. While the second college, College B, I could possibly study A levels, as long as I get 5 GCSEs between A*-C.

    In my opinion, by going to college A and studying Animal Management I will be limiting myself in what I would be able to do career wise. However, college B I would study different subjects that could be used in a range of different careers.

    Each college has it's pros and cons.

    I'm stuck on what college to go to. If I were to attend college B, I was thinking of possibly studying Environmental Studies, Geology, Biology, and possibly either Chemistry or Physics (These all depend on my GCSE grades that I receive on the 21st of August). Do these A levels go well together? Do you have any advice on what college to attend? Thanks a lot.

    I would go to college B - you are absolutely right studying Animal Management will only allow you to go into Animal Management - and I am not sure there are many jobs in that.

    Option B is a far more flexible choice - it is a no -brainer

    Thanks for the fast reply, this is what I was thinking as well. I'll hopefully attend a meeting with college B after I get my results to discuss the courses I would be able to do. Thanks.
