    1) Have a look on the Royal Air Force Careers site, it should tell you which kind of A-Levels to choose.
    2) Have you considered doing a vocational course instead at your local college?

    When the RAF talks about having A-Levels on its recruitment site, they mean A-Level equivalents. I'd go for a vocational course.

    When the RAF talks about A-Levels it means having A-Levels *or* equivalents. Do whatever you will enjoy and in which are likely to do well. The subjects don't matter as long as they aren't on the unacceptable list, this is subjects such as General Studies and Critical Thinking.

    1- it doesn't, because they don't prescribe such things, except for ones that aren't acceptable. If OP wants an A level in music then they can get it and the RAF will accept it.
    2- either are fine.

    And no, when the RAF talks about A levels they mean A levels. Equivalents are also acceptable, but it's both.

    The RAF don't really mind what A levels you have, just that you have the minimum requirements. The careers site will tell you the number of UCAS points required as a minimum, but you should aim to exceed these. So pick the A levels you'll pass well at.

    As an officer you'll be expected - and will need to be - articulate and able to communicate via written and verbal methods to a high level, so have a think about what A level courses could be the best for that.
