    Hey i have to pick my a levels soon and i am completely stuck on ideas. My current gcse grades are:
    English A*
    English lit A*
    Maths A
    Bio A
    Chem A*
    Physics A
    History A
    Rs B
    spanish A
    Geography A*

    The thing is, i enjoy all my subjects and therefore have no idea what to go for. My favourites are probably chemistry, maths and physics but i have heard they're very hard and really i want to be able to achieve an A at a level. Then if i was to take an essay based subject it would be between history and spanish- which is harder and why?
    I also kind of have an interest in english and with no idea what to do in the future i need some advice.
    Also what a levels would be BEST for law or medicine? (My mums enquiry)

    Well done - they're excellent grades!

    First bit of advice would be always to go for those you enjoy and you're good at because you're more likely to work harder at them and get a good grade.

    Between history and spanish - sorry no idea didn't do either.

    Mine were Maths, Economics, Further Maths and Physics with an AS level in Chemistry. I went on to study Maths and Economics at uni.

    Maths and sciences are easier to score higher marks in in the sense that there's a definite answer whereas with essay subjects, it's often subjective and the markers have a lot more discretion.


    Medicine - you would deffo need Chemistry. Another science or maths one would also be good.

    Law - I believe English and History would be the best bet.

    Actually I know two guys who did just that - one got AAAA and the other got Es and Us so bit of a gamble.

    Wow it is a gamble :/ But no offence the other one either got an awful examiner, misread the question or just didn't work hard enough. To get Es and Us can be unexpected but it's usually due to lack of understanding. So as long as you work hard and make the most of your academic advantage - making sure you understand as you work through the course, you should definitely be fine.
