    Hello, I'm currently doing my GCSE's and I've already applied for sixth form I will be doing A levels. So far, I have applied for Biology,Maths, English Literature and Art. After much thought and advice from older friends, I've realised that A level Art may not be for me, as much as I enjoy Art, I don't think i'll be able to cope with the stress. I'm planning on going to university after Sixth form however I don't know which course I want to do, something like mental health interests me but i'm incredibly indicisive, one minute I want to do engineering then law the next minute, i dont know. My other options instead of Art are: Health and Social, Psychology, Chemistry or History. Please help. Thanks.

    so you want to either be an engineer or study law. hmm obviously some english skill is needed there for law but may not be key,

    however if you want to be an engineer mostly you will need to be doing physics along with maths

    is that something you would consider doing in place of art?

    If you aren't sure what you want to be it's okay. I didn't know until end of AS levels but choosing the right A Levels is key. Here is what you would require for the two you are deciding from:

    Engineering: Maths and Physics/Biology/Chem are required. The science depends on what type of engineering you are considering so I really advise looking at different ones (a few examples - Mechanical, Electrical, Biological, Chemical, Aeronautical). Physics relies heavily on understanding concepts. Biology relies heavily on memorizing things. Chemistry relies on both (I took Phys and Chem. Biology I can speak for from my friend's experiences).

    Law: Try and go for at least two good, solid arts (English Lit and History ideally, others such as Philosophy/Theology are an option). One social sciences is useful (geography, politics, psychology)

    Generally Maths and English Lit are both very good A-Levels to have and give you a wide range of choices. Choosing your A-levels is important so take it slow and make the right choices. I regret choosing Chem cause it's so hard and I don't need it anyways
