    So I am currently experiencing a peculiar dilemma. I am a year behind in school (so I'm in Year 11 when I should be in Year 10) and GCSE's (as most of you already know) are coming up soon. I am miles behind in coursework for Business and Computer Science, however I feel I can achieve a high grade on both.

    But here is my question: I don't know whether I should study A-level Creative writing, Physics, or Computer Science.

    I am an A* in English, and have decided I am already doing English Language as a choice.

    I am an A in physics in both core and additional (I do double science.)

    However, I am a C in computer Science, because of my lack of coursework, however I achieved an A* on the mock exam (my coursework pieces are both a G and an F grade respectively. Or something that low.)

    Can you guys give me some advice on what to do? I understand I have an advantage because of that extra year, but I am extremely stuck on what to do.

    Also, one main problem is my Maths grade that might hinder my chances anyways. I am barely scraping a C in maths (I just suck at it) and if I fail at GCSE, I will have to resit, and this limits my choices.
    Thanks for reading, and I hope you can help me

    I enjoy physics but it requires a lot of maths so I'm not sure it's the right choice for you. Do you have any ideas of what you want to do after A Levels?

    English, Science, and Computer Science. I'm just really stressed right now.
    Do you have any prospective colleges/sixth forms you want to apply to?
    Which science are you most inclined towards? All three or just one?
    What do you want to do in the future?


    >You could do English, one of the sciences and CompSci.
    > If you want to pursue CompSci in the future, Maths and/or Physics with another science

    Is it possible for him to wait for his GCSE results and decide then?

    1. Physics requires a lot of maths. It considered hard.
    2. Why is your computer science course work so poor?

    Talk to your teachers. see if you cna wait and then choose after you get the results.

    Any idea what you wnat to do at Uni?
