    What are the best A-levels not for University, but for employment in general?
    It depends what you want to do. For something involving lots of writing an essay subject would be best, but for other jobs you might need maths or science.

    In general, stick to more traditional subjects rather than things like media studies (but this could be handy if you want to work in media). Try to choose ones you'll do best in, and things that you enjoy so are motivated to do well. There's no point picking history if you can't tell the difference between Henry VIII and Hitler. But you'd be silly to pick biology if you're squeamish about dissecting frogs.
