    Hi! I am looking to get into Loughborough on a sport science course and was wondering if these are good a level options? My other uni choices are Bath, Durham, Northumbria or Leeds on similar sports courses (eg, sport, exercise and physical activity/ sport and social sciences etc). I am looking to pick:
    Definitely= Sport
    And then two out of= Geography, Psychology or English Language
    Also, would you advise picking 3 or 4 A level options (I think the place I am looking to go to makes us do General Studies, so also what is that like?)
    Thanks in advance :-)

    That sounds like a great set of A-levels. I would do 4 in case you want to drop something in the second year. And besides, most universities don't take General Studies seriously or accept them so you're fine.

    I'd recommend taking a science subject, the best probably being biology for Sports and Exercise science.

    Please take Biology! It would help you greatly, and if you're interested in sports science, you'll probably be interested in Bio too! paticularly since those unis are brilliant and competetive.

    Something like Biology, Geography, Psycology
    Or Biology, Geography, P.E.

    Yes I have studied it

    I'm currently doing the whole thing in a year.... It's actually really interesting, you get to learn about cells really in depth, as well as organs, nervous system . Then you'll also learn about ecosystems, classification etc. It's a great subject, and it will probably show you how remarkable life is a little more than PE, and give you a deeper understanding! There are somethings really related to health, you look at heart and lung diseases, diabetes etc. You also look at how diet can be used as treatment etc.

    I'd certainly reccomend it!

    Psychology can be very difficult and it's a lot to learn so only do it if you're ready to spend a huge amount of time on it. I am currently in my second year of A Level English Language and it's great, very different from GCSE but still good

    Yeah I am worried about the workload slightly, especially if I take 4 options! I do like the look of English language definitely and psych looks so interesting but so much work! Thanks :-)
