    I am very conflicted with my choices for A-Levels and I don't really know what I should choose anymore.

    I want to be a director and maybe one day go onto acting and i don't know what courses could assist me. I didn't take drama as a GCSE (stupidly) and have recently realised that I regret that decision because I wanted to do Theatre studies as A-Level but i don't think I can. That's the first issue.

    I want to take Psycology, Photography and Film Studies as A-levels, what is your thoughts on those? I am pretty much lost and just need some help.

    If you do any of those subjects could you tell me what you do and how it could help me and you could also suggest better choices. Thank you!! 😁

    I think Film studies will be hard without taking English as well. Why don't you consider English Literature? And is there no way you can do theatre studies without doing Drama GCSE, your sixth form may allow it.

    Dont do that. Keep your options open because if you changed your mind, no uni is going to accept you for other academic courses. I'd say take at least two facilitating subjects, (english lit. is one of them) and you probably don't need to take both photography and film studies, one of them would be enough, then take another academic subject or a language. If you like films, you don't need a degree in it I always encourage my mates who like films to do something like English lit which is related and the practical stuff you can learn in like a year after graduation. Also, you can find a job if filmmaking didn't work. Of course, it's none of my business and I hope you don't mind me saying this stuff,

    Yeah, I think I will need to ask somebody at my sixth form about doing theatre studies just in case, also I was considering English literature, i might give it some more thought, thank you 😊
