Okay this has been stressing me out for a long time.
I am aware that I have taken what could be seen as 'soft' a levels, my family has no experience with universities and the support I received from school was pretty poor and I was essentially sold on the subjects without proper information on how they could hinder me in my future.
I attended another college where I was taking Film Studies (I enjoy film very much and am very passionate about it so It seemed like a reasonable choice at the time when I didn't know about such a thing as 'soft' a levels), Computer science (another subject that interests me) and philosophy. Due to some mitigating circumstances I had to move colleges back to old sixth form a month afterwards, I effectively had to have me and my parents beg to let me back in and to my surprise they did, but I had to choose my choices right there and then on the day.
The subjects I was currently taking didn't fall into the option blocks of my sixth form so I chose: Film Studies, ICT (school doesn't offer computer science so this was the only thing in the block that was anywhere close) and English Literature (Since I do enjoy reading and I found it ridiculously easy to get a grade A at GCSE even doing it in year 10 and really just messing about the entire lesson) .
Recently I have changed my ideas of uni courses I want to do time and time again but after much though I have my heart set on a course: Politics (or international relations) and Economics (dual subject).
My predicted grades so far at AS level are:
Film Studies (A)
English Lit (A/B)
Unis I was hoping to apply to are:
I also plan to do the EPQ next year focused on an Economics question or perhaps something that incorporates both economics and politics.
Basically, my question is, is it likely that I'm able to get onto these courses at uni, assuming I meet the entry requirements (grade-wise)?
I also take part in a number of activities within school:
English Literature ambassador
Teaching basic English to younger students within from periods.
Do you think my application would be strong enough get me onto my choice of degree at these unis?
