    So same as everyone in yr 11 I'm picking what I want to do next. I have decided to stay where I am and Do A levels but I'm stuck on what to pick.

    Currently I have
    Business
    Media
    Psychology
    Dance

    and yes this is a full set and I want to do them all but I also know I should do a core subject I have science in mind as I'm okay at it but I don't know which one I'm not really better at a particular one. but I get very stressed easily so should I just stick with my original choices? I have been thinking about this for so long I can't decide!

    It really depends on what you want to do in the future (university, apprenticeship, full-time work?) and what qualifications in waht you will need for that. You also don't want to pick four really hard subjects (whether their hard or not depends on how hard you think they are) if you say you get stressed easily as when you get around to revising then it will be hard.

    If you are wanting to go into a media/marketing industry then media studies would be an obvious choice for an A-level. English language often goes well alongside that (although I don't know whether that is a subject you would be wanting to do?). If you can see yourself progressing into a managerial position in the media/marketing industry then Business would be ideal for that too.

    A lot of schools have a careers advisor so if yours does have one then I would suggest seeing him/her as they can direct you towards your ambition.

    Ps. Sorry for late reply

    At my school English language turned out to be completely different to what it was in GCSE. In GCSE we wrote reports and letters etc for the exam but in AS-level now we are doing the functions of language and its purpose etc, accent and dialect.

    I would look into a range of subjects on your sixth-form evening (if you haven't had it yet? I forgot when it is). Definitely go speak to a careers person or even a media teacher to ask about what other things you might need for where you want to go in the future
