So I am still unable to decide my A Level choices; I know for sure that I would like to take Geography and Sociology, but I'm not sure what else.
Things I'm considering are:
Maths A Level
(Business Studies A Level) or (Economics/Business A Level)
And Media Studies A Level
What should I do? I'm scared that if i do Business and Media, that won't look good as my set of A Level choices. I'm Asian, and my mum keeps nagging me to do A Level Maths :/
But I dunno, opinions please everyone
Geography - A/A*
Maths - B
Media Studies - Distinction
*Sociology - No GCSE, but I have spoken to the Sociology teacher who also teaches me media studies, and he said I'm very capable of getting an A
*Business Studies - Again, no GCSE, but I would like to do it at A Level
I'm not entirely sure as to what I'd like to do in the future as well. Well I have some ideas, and that would be to work in the media and do some sort of national television subtitling work, but you can really take any A Level and end up working in the media or having some work experience. Or work abroad and do some form of translation work. It's hard.

Economics goes really well with geography, good overlap I really enjoy both. If you want to keep your options open then do maths as well.

Maths will be the hardest if you are getting a B at GCSE. But then again it is very respected (although entirely unnecessary for media-related degrees)
Best to do the subject you enjoy most, as you will work hardest for it. Sounds like you're more interested in Business, but that's just my opinion.
Good luck, do your research (look at some past papers). Don't worry if everything looks hard, just look at what kind of things you'd have to learn.
