    i'm planning on doing english literature, music technology and media studies.
    i think i'd like to go to uni or maybe BIMM, possibly to study something to do with the music industry, like music production or music journalism. i know what my interests are and aren't (definitely not interested in medicine or maths!) and i think i'd enjoy the a levels i've chosen. however i'm unsure of what i want to do post a levels and for a career and whether my a levels would be too restricting of opportunities...do my a level choices sound reasonable? any reply is appreciated

    Yeah they sound fine OP, especially for your career choice - however, I would advise you to take English lit at university as this opens up a broader range of jobs (because English is more respected at degree level)

    Let OP choose their degree, they will be the one studying it and those A levels don't prep you for an English lit degree- they prep you for what OP wants to do in their chosen career path.

    I guess, Media studies isn't exactly a respected A-level, however It does seem okay for what he wants to pursue in life.

    IMO I dont think E lit would blend well. However I think you should consider doing 4. If youre good at E lit then thats brilliant. Maybe computing? But you should do maths if you cant think of a fourth. Look at the statistics for A level maths pass rates.
