    I would like to become a primary school teacher but am wondering what a levels should I take to achieve this? Would Sociology, Biology, Health and Social and Environmental studies be suitable?



    As someone that would also like to become a teacher - my advice would be to choose subjects that show your flexibility and social skills; therefore, sociology and health and social are definitely good choices!

    I would also recommend English - but only if you enjoy it; because it is a pretty difficult subject.

    Subjects that provide a wide range of skills are also good - e.g. Geography and Psychology; because they show research skills, they link to science, people skills, humanities...

    Although, I think that you are choosing pretty wise subjects; they may also want Cs in Maths and English GCSE - so check that you get that

    Good luck - any questions, ask me or check out my education blog: nataliet97.blogspot.co.uk/
