    I don't really know what career I want to go into so I was planning on taking philosophy, french and music because I enjoy them. The only thing is, I'm not sure if those subjects could really lead to many careers?
    The other thing is that I like the idea of being a dietician but I would have to take two sciences for another two years, and I hate science apart from food science and a few other specific areas. I don't know if it's worth doing while I'm not certain that's what I'd like to do, it's just an idea?
    Also as a career would it somehow be possibly to be a music/philosophy teacher and travel round the world teaching for a living?

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Just do subjects you're interested in. French, philosophy and music are perfectly good A levels. Do you want to go to university, or go straight into work after school?Dietetics degrees contain rather a lot of science (cell biology, physiology, psychology, biochemistry, genetics etc); if you hate science then you shouldn't do this degree. Teaching abroad is an option but you need to do a degree first.

    I'd like to go to university after school. And I know, but I do enjoy a few specific areas of science (food science being on of them) so I do think that overall I'd really enjoy dietetics.Thank you for your reply!

    I've looked into philosophy A level myself to see what careers it can lead to, and it only directly leads to being a philsophy teacher, although some companies like people with a degree in it, something about open-mindedness.

    French is generally an all round good thing, all the jobs people love bilingual people.

    No idea what music does.

    If you wanna do dietetics stuff you will almost certainly need some science, but if you hate science then don't go down that path, it'll be awful during your A level and you might change your mind on what you wanna do anyway.

    I'd say that although you like the dietics stuff right now, but seeing as the sciences do not appeal, there a whole range of other paths to go down, and those A-Levels are perfectly good ones.

    An idea would be to go onto Uni websites to look at courses they offer (thousands if you include joint-degrees, ones with a split in subject's taught) to get an idea of what you might like to look into.

    Try to get a rough idea, and if all else fails, go with your gut and do what you like doing, keeping an open mind.

    Good luck choosing ur A-Levels

    Like others have said; do what you enjoy. A lot of universities will have a standard grade offer without specific subject requirements such as PPE and archaeology. You will most likely find the career you want to go into by chance during your A-Levels.
    However if you are 100% sure that you want to become a dietician then look at what university courses are like and how much of the course you would actually like, especially because you aren't a fan of the sciences, then decide which route is best for you. But A-Levels are a lot harder when you don't enjoy the subject (know that from experience!)
