hi, i am still deciding what to take to for a-level, i want have a career in accounting, stockbroker or maybe an insurance broker, i need some advie from the wise people of uk learning!!!
ive decided on maths, economics and accounting and was considering biology but heard taht its hard and pointless for me!!!
thanks in advance
Drop accounting. Pick up a science.
Yeah drop accounting. biology isn't hard, I did no homework for AS biology and still pulled off an A.
Do an Accounting A-level if you plan not to go university.
Maths is obviously the undoubted biggie - just make sure that your other subjects have a strong academic element and that you enjoy them. Taking up physics wouldn't be the worst thing in the world, if you enjoy it that is - it would complement maths and open up other doors.
thanks for teh advice, so i intend to take up maths, economics and biology whould i do a fourth???
I'm just finishing Maths and Economics (and English Lit for that matter), and Economics (& English) bored the hell out of me.
Maths was pointless stuff you'll never need again, unless you want to be a maths teacher or study at university. Though seeing a maths A-Level on a CV I guess is impressive, so it has its plusses and minuses.
Economics is just boring. The course I did (OCR) just seemed padded out like they didn't have enough content, so they ask us some random rubbish. I can't think of much good from it, although I think everyone should understand the basics of how the economy works - most people don't.
And English is just looking for hidden meanings the author probably never intended.
Call me cynical, but I think I'm a realist.
Anyway, I wish I'd gone for IT, Physics, perhaps Psychology (it interests me, but isn't worth too much however) and Maths (despite what I said - it's the best A-Level to own).
Hope that helps.
Out of intertest how does Alevel maths contradict GCSE maths? I would say the rigourous understanding of concepts like rates of change gained from alevel maths would be useful in everyday life.
hi i need some adveice about actury, if i do deice that the career intersts me then the a-levels subjects that i will take are
biology for analytical and im fairly good with it
maths as its helps with probability ets
economics for business knowledge and the economy
and i was thinking about psycology as it helps with human behavior or is it socilogy???
take a language a-level, i know i'm biased and all, but seriously you will be so much more employable with a language-my mum's an accountant and the amount of job adverts that look for accountants which require fluency in a foreign language is quite high. you'll earn much more than just an ordinary accountant.
