    Right, I need serious help. I ain't got a clue what I want to do for A-Level nor do I know what I want to do for a career. I am really passionate about media but I know it is an impossible industry to get into. I really love film making and I make videos whenever I can. But I have come to the sad conclusion that I should settle for something more realistic. I can get a job in media without taking any courses, but it is still a dream thats hard to chase. Should i do that? I have also thought of a job in marketing? I believe that you can get a job in marketting in almost any industry. Maybe media, or maybe something completely different! BASICALLY I DONT HAVE A CLUE! The subjects that I am good at in GCSE are: History, Media, and that is about it haha!! I am not bad at any subject, I just don't really stand out in any others. My parents think it will be good for me to do an A-level in Maths no matter what as it will look good. BUT I HATE IT SO MUCH AND CHEMISTRY! Sorry for the lecture but I was wondering if anyone could help! haha PLEASE

    Choose subjects that you enjoy because you will do better if you enjoy it. For example I loved IT at GCSE and I now do it at A-Level and I am on an A. If you enjoy you will do better because you will be more passionate about it. Also, it really all comes down to your GCSE results at the end of the day because you might end up doing better at a subject then you thought. For example I was getting D's in my GCSE R.E mocks, but at the end of the day I achieved an A grade. Haha!

    It's up to you what subjects you choose but make sure you enjoy the subject and look in to what the course has to offer. Even if you did well at GCSE make sure you choose a subject you enjoy. I made that mistake with chemistry, I didn't find it interesting but did pretty well at GCSE and thought as its a science it will look really good.

    But I hated it, revising was a chore didn't find it interesting, I found lesson boring and subsequently I didn't get a very good grade. On the other hand If you go for something that you enjoy for me its Economics, revising doesn't seem like a chore and you end up looking at it all the time and your are more motivated to revise and get a good grade.

    I know this hasn't really helped with what options to choose but just make sure you have an interest in the subject as it will make you life so much easier :-)
