    I'm currently in the middle of choosing my options ready for A Levels in September.
    I know that I am definitely taking French, IT and Business but I don't know what to choose for my last option. I'm torn between DT or RE. Can someone help me out here please? I'm looking to go into Business/Marketing in the future.
    Thanks

    Choose which subject you find more interesting. Unless you're intending to take DT or RE at A Level, it's completely irrelevant which one you take as far as universities are concerned, so take the one you a) enjoy and b) are more confident you'll do well in.

    I currently take Graphics for GCSE, but my school does not do Graphics for A Level. However, I currently enjoying studying both, RE and DT, but I'm just not sure which one I would prefer during the A Level course.
    I'm worried that if I take DT and don't like it and then take RE and also don't like RE and prefer DT, my school won't allow it because I've dropped the subject previously.

    I'm terrible at Geography, and English Lit is definitely a no, no from me. I can just managed Shakespeare poetry. But I'm more into Marketing than Business.

    I have to give in my option choices tomorrow, so I need to choose them by tomorrow. But they will not be 100% right until September.
