Hi! The best thing I can suggest for you, is before you pick your A Level Options to have a proper sit down and consider possible careers. Write down all the things you are interested in e.g. textiles etc. and where you could see yourself working in a few years. Consider what you are good at, what sort of personality type you have and your interests. Once you have considered all these options do some research and find out jobs/careers which may be in the same path and may interest you.

Alternatively, instead of considering doing those subjects at university have you ever considered doing something related to those subjects? For instance, if you are into P.E prehaps something fitness related such as sports science, coaching, Physiotherapy or Sports Therapy.

Or, in terms of English or textiles you could become a teacher or something related (don't know much about the careers involved in these subjects). Spend some time, looking through university websites to see what courses are available, and as I mentioned above consider your personality, interests and what you are good at and work around that.

Alternatively, if that does not work and you are still unsure of what career/A Levels to take, don't fret, I'd say 90% of people in my year group entering college to study A Levels had no idea what they wanted/want to do. Prehaps the best option is to take the subjects you enjoy and see where they take you. Alternatively, you could take a GAP year before attending college (a few people in shcool with me did this) to get a job and arrange some work experience to see what you are truly interested in!

Good Luck
