    Fam. It will be tough. I thought 4 would be easy and I barely have 5 minutes to myself.


    (Original post by Ara8311a)
    I need to choose my A-levels for sixth form and I'm wondering if five is too many? How does anyone doing five manage or not manage?

    At the moment I'm thinking of doing,
    English Lit
    Further Maths
    Computing/ Geography

    I'm having a difficult time deciding whether to do geography or computing so I'd also welcome any advice about the two subjects. Thanks!
    Totally possible if you're willing to put the effort in and you're actually good at the subjects. My friend did 6AS and an EPQ on top of that and still ended up with straight As (though she is very clever).

    I think geography would be better because it gives you more opportunities. You can do computer science at uni without computing a level but you generally need geography a level to do geography at uni for example. Have you thought about what you want to study at uni?
