A-Level Choices!?!?!?!?!?!? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am stuck about what to take for my fourth A-Level so some advice would be highly appreciated. My top three choices are German, History and Textiles (all of which I do at GCSE) but I don't know whether to take English Literature, Psychology or Philosophy as my fourth. As a person who is interested in something international like Law or Journalism, which options out of these would you choose? Thank you

    I would go for whichever subject you think you will be able to manage and enjoy.

    The drop out rate for Modern Languages is VERY high between AS and A2. If you are not planning on completing all four.

    Depending on where you chose to apply to Uni, you may fined people feel that textiles isn't the best qualification to get onto a very academic course ( see Russell Group Uni 'facilitating subjects' ).

    In short - make sure you would be happy taking any 3 onto A2. You never know with A levels just how your first year will go.

    (Sorry I probably sound very negative)
    Best wishes and good luck
