    I have come to the realisation that I would like to do a degree in construction, but I feel like I have chosen the wrong a levels...
    I am taking:
    English literature,
    History,
    Government and politics,
    And sociology.
    Will I still be able to do a construction degree with these a levels or are they too unrelated?

    Do you have a careers advisor at your sixth form, because you could go and speak to them and ask, the subjects you have chosen are quite varied though and usually lead to a wide range of jobs opportunities. You don't always needs to take an A level in somethings to be able to do it as a career 😊

    We do not have a careers advisor at sixth form unfortunatly, I am just hoping my a levels do not put me at a disadvantage.

    With no science, maths or technology subjects in your A levels you are most certainly at a disadvantage if you want to pursue a degree in construction. One route could be a foundation degree first or degree with integrated foundation year.
