I was thinking to choose History, English Lit and Politics as my A Levels, but I don't have a clue on what I want to be. I've been searching on the Internet about potential careers, but to no avail. What possible career routes could I go down?

Have a look at http://university.which.co.uk/a-leve.../history?o=120 (including the unexpected matches!).

You have a very wide range of options to go into - it depends a lot on what your actual interests are and what you enjoy doing.

I know this wasn't aimed at me, but thank you! I've been using this site, but your suggestion seems better:
http://www.bestcourse4me.com/explore/

I don't suppose there's one for degrees to suggested careers is there?

Which? get their data from best course 4 me....but they're easier to link to and a bit higher level. Bestcourse4me is a really useful resource but it's a bit of a faff to use if you don't know exactly what you're looking for (and their careers data is better than Which?s). :yes:

Do they have one for degrees to possible careers? or can you suggest a site? (beginning to think I've made a mistake)

best course 4 me will show the careers that graduates of a specific subject (or a specific subject at specific universities) went on to.

Or you can do the opposite on there and select a career and it will show the degrees (and other qualifications) that people in that career took.

Another resource worth looking at is both https://nationalcareersservice.direc...s/default.aspx and https://www.prospects.ac.uk/job-profiles (prospects is aimed at graduates whereas the national careers service is more general)

https://www.prospects.ac.uk/careers-...with-my-degree is advice about opportunities with different degrees (so looking at options rather than planning a route to a specific job)
