Ive just got my gcse results (1 A*, 5 A's, 4 B's)
This means that i am eligible to do these a level subjects of my choice:
English Language, Psychology, Philosophy&Ethics, Politics
My parents keep telling me that these choices will not lead to a 'good' profession and that also due to my race (I am black), that it is much harder for us to get employed. Could i be able to get into a top uni with a decent course?
Id be grateful for your opinions and im also hoping to prove them wrong.

Can these a levels lead to a decent profession/uni course or not? watch

Firstly, congratulations on an excellent set of GCSE results!
Your choice of degree (if you are planning on attending university) is far more important than your A level choices. Of course, most degrees require you to take certain A level courses, but your choices should set you up for a large selection of humanities degrees or possibly a psychology degree. Those humanities degrees include subjects like Law which, of course, are renowned for leading to excellent careers. If you get good grades in those subjects I see absolutely no reason why you couldn't end up with a fantastic job in the future!
It's a sad fact that racism is still rampant in the 21st century, but there are now many black and mixed-race people in high-paid high-power jobs, so it's perfectly possible for you to get there.
