I am completely confused about what I should do when I finish school. My options are to either take psychology, government & politics, geog or Russian, or complete a fashion design course. My predicted grades are A-B, and I am clueless about what I should do.

If I were you, I'd certainly go down the A-level route; it's more likely to guarantee a future career.

I'd strongly suggest you to do your a levels, I might be biased because education is very important in my opinion but qualifications in those subjects as well would be very impressive

I'd agree with the above. Have fashion design as a hobby.

A levels will give you a much stronger foundation in whatever you choose to pursue in the future.

I agree with everyone, but I do have a great interest in fashion/ fashion design, and would like it as a job. If I chose A levels I have no idea what I would do with them after, but it seems more of a safer option((

I didn't take art or textiles at GCSE, which means that I can't take it at a level

Do you not have a portfolio? I don't think you need art gcse to do art a level. Email prospective sixth form colleges and ask, explaining your situation.

Well, I'm taking a fashion course along with my A-levels as it's 100% exam based.

I was in your position 3 years ago and in the end, I chose to do A-Levels and BTEC. It was the best decision I have made.

I think you should do A-Levels and have fashion design as a hobby, because A-Levels will open many opportunities for you.

Your options are likely to be limited, if you just study a fashion course.

I completely agree that it limits me, but I know that I want a job within the fashion industry. Then I think the a levels that I want to take seem to be interesting, which confuses me
