What subjects do you like?

Think about what you want to do in the future and do some research on what a levels you need. Literally what you just asked is going to **** yourself over in the future randomly asking for what a levels to take and then choosing a random bunch from some people who don't know about you.Last edited by Vikingninja; 22-02-2016 at 23:52.

I think the two main points to take into consideration are:
1. What subjects do you enjoy the most and feel you will be able to cope with the strenuous work load they place on you per subject
2. Which subjects will you put you in the best position for your future aspirations and which subjects will open the most doors for you
I would choose only subjects you enjoy and know will be highly beneficial to your future. This can be counter-intuitive of which I have discovered and experienced through my A level choices. I chose to study physics of which I do not enjoy at all however I received high GCSE grades for it. I chose to study physics not only because I believed I was good at the subject at a lower level (thinking it would stand me in good stead for A levels...which is hasn't aha) but also because its a subject of which my future university degree course would highly appreciate. However it has worked against me in my favour as my pure distaste in the subject and its content leads me to be very unmotivated to revise and do wider reading around the subject which is an essential part of A levels and independent study.
So from this I hope you not only think about the subjects you are good at/will benefit you, but just as importantly, the subjects you will enjoy.
Have a look around each of the courses content to ensure it all interests you. Interest is a huge part of decision making!
I hope this helps!!
