Stuck on what A-Levels to pick watch

    • Thread Starter

    State your current A-Levels and how you are finding them

    Do you have an idea of what you want to do as a career?

    Have a look at different university courses to see what's interesting as your choices will be very important. If in doubt pick facilitating subjects like the sciences, maths, English and some humanities.

    I'm doing chemistry, English, maths and computer science. They're all difficult

    ^I second that about picking facilitating subjects. They'll open up more doors at uni, so it doesn't really matter if you're not sure what you want to do. Also pick subjects you enjoy!! This is crucial because you'll be studying them in depth for two years and if you find the subject dull then you're going to spend the entire time wanting to throw yourself out of a window

    I'm doing English Literature, English Language, History and Religious Studies at AS. Language and History are both really difficult in terms of how much you need to know. I'm really enjoying one side of the English Lit course but I hate the other (we're studying Wuthering Heights and I find it dreadful). I'm going to drop RS for A level, but I do find it really interesting and I wish I could keep it.
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
