    Hey guys,

    Im a bit stuck tbh, im currently in my first years of a levels studying Biology, English literature and ecnomics. everyone always says the subjects im doing are so varied, quite right. but it leaves me a bit confused and lost as im not sure what kind of courses i could do? i dont think i want to do anything involving english as i am not enjoying the subject. I want to have atleast a rough idea of what course i could perhaps do with bio and economics as i NEED to do work experience in order to do my personal statement. Any help and advice really would be hugely appreciated. also any suggestions on any companies that take work experience students!

    Thank you!

    off the top of my head, english but obvs you dont want to... law maybe, business, politics maybe? different unis have different requirements. some unis definitely want maths for economics. anthropology possibly or archaeology often dont have specific subject requirements but also would probably prefer humanities/history. psychology perhaps, asian studies, some biology courses are happy with just 1 science, even some computer sciences i think. education studies i think? criminology, forensic science, film, health and social care, philosophy, sports science, social work, sociology, conservation and yeah, theres just loads of courses that do not ask for specific subjects, from arts to sciences etc. also, if you do your a levels but then really want to do a course in something you arent qualified for, theres also a possibility for foundation years in some circumstances, e.g. suddenly you realise you wanted to be a physicist all along and do a physics foundation then degree. just another opportunity i dont think is talked about enough.
