    I think that I want to do chemistry, maths and textiles but I am not sure what to pick for my 4th one. It is between physics and graphics. I enjoy graphics more but then would I have picked two many 'soft' subjects?
    I am not sure what I want to do for a job but I thinking either textiles or chemistry related.

    By predicted GCSE grades are:
    Maths=B (would I find it two hard at a-level?)
    All sciences=A
    Textiles and graphics= A/A*

    For my sixth form you need an A at gcse to do maths a level, but if your sixth form say you'll be able to do maths a level then I don't think it'll be too hard as long as you're willing to put the work in.
    Textiles and graphics may be seen as 'doss' subjects if you're planning on going in the more academic direction, but if you want to do somethjng in the textiles industry then they are both good subjects to do. If you want to do a chemistry degree then physics may be a good fourth option as it is another science, although you'd have to check the entry requirements as I think some unis want two sciences (this could be wrong, I've not really looked into it). At the end of the day you have to decide which direction you want to go in and then choose your fourth option accordingly. If you're still completely unsure I'd say go for the one you enjoy, because you're more likely to do better in something you like than something you hate because you won't be motivated to work.
    I suggest you speak to your careers advisor/ head of sixth form/ form tutor or someone at school who can advise you on the situation.

    Physics. You're obviously unsure as to what you want to do so it keeps your options open.
