    Ok, so I'm currently in year 11 and finishing my GCSEs. I am currently studying business, music, geography, french and, of course, maths, English lit/lang and additional science. I want to get a career in the banking industry and I want to start off being a cashier in a bank. I want to study Maths a-level, business. I don't know what to do for my other 2 choices.

    I was thinking of maybe doing philosophy, psychology, English lit or lang but still I don't really know.

    Anyone help me?

    English Lit is regarded as better (facilitating), but at the end of the day take the subjects you like best. You may change your mind and then at least you can study something you want to do, as you have your favourite subjects as a levels. Hope this helps,

    Actually those subjects are all considered facilitating, even by Cambridge. Although they do count English language and psychology as being of "more limited suitability" and therefore below philosophy and English lit.

    Languages are highly regarded so if you enjoy French and are good at it, then it would be advisable to take that. Eng lit is good to show unis a varied skill set, more respected than English lang.

    Personally, I have been told to avoid psychology as it isn't highly regarded, and the only reason I wanted to do it was because it sounds interesting. Unless you want to be a psychologist or do it at uni, then it isn't advisable to take it. Philosophy is not facilitating but more respected than psychology. Maths definitely! Business is good. Eng lit is v good to do I've been told. I'd say philosophy but it's up to you! Good luck! Message me if you need any more help! X📚📖

    I would maybe recommend economics instead of business if they offer it.

    thanks alot. I've got my sixth form taster day at school and because of the pathway my school recommended me coz of my expected grades I went with; business btec level 3, creative media level 3, economics and philosophy. I know creative media is not the best to choose but it is only for an hour at school on Wednesday... and i wasn't able to pick Maths for taster day coz the grade for the entry requirement is an A and I'm only a C at the moment
