A Level Choices- Can someone give me some advice?Watch
Currently I am aiming to study either Computer Sciences or Economics at my chosen university, and am not entirely clear on the best subject combinations that ensure a good chance of acceptance AND a moderately enjoyable 6th form- hating a subject doesn't really suggest it is a good career path
Computer science: A* A* A
- Computer Science
Economics: A* A* A
I have seen that economics colleges at my preferred uni do not REQUIRE economics whereas Computer science, Maths and Physics seem very highly recommended for the CompSci courses, so I was most attracted to option 1. If anyone here has taken or is taking this course, PLEASE let me know how you find it! Secondly, economics seems to be considered an easier subject to take, I was wondering if universities see it as a way out of studying something more difficult, can anyone comment on this?
Any help or comments are massively appreciated, thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to read this!
Surely the obvious option would be maths, physics, economics, and computer science? Covers all the bases.
Pretty sure computer science courses do not generally expect computer science A level (plenty of schools don't even offer it), just maths A level, so there's nothing really to choose between the two options you've given.
I dunno. If option 1, then perhaps knowledge of biology could lead to some interesting computer science application in the future (albeit post-degree level), with the computational mapping of biological processes (e.g. computational neuroscience). Though I'm biased, but just a thought.
Can anyone tell me if latin is a decent subject at A Level? I have found it incredibly easy at GCSE, a total walkthrough (A* in a past paper with no revision at all in my last end of years) and I was thinking it might be a good one to take at A level. Can anyone give me some pointers on that?
