    Hi, originally I wanted to chose Business Studies, Philosophy, Geography and English literature. However, since then my opinions have changed.

    I'm concidering now doing Business Studies, Philosophy, Psychology and Textiles (?).

    I love geography. However it's such hard work and it was the subject which caused the most stress thoughout the whole academic year. Originally i was aiming for an A for geog gcse but during the exams I felt so stressed and pressured, ergo I'm now WISHING for a B.

    I changed it to psychology because I did it for GCSE and I loved it. I'm good at it too. I think it's a good choice as it is a social science which (somehow) must account for something?

    Textiles I have NEVER considered. Like, EVER! The reason I'm considering it is because my career aspirations are associated with business...I'm not sure what yet. My ideas range from working with fashion designers with their business plan, to being CEO of whatnot.

    I comprehend that this may sound vague and confusing.

    What do you think?

    P.s after I've completed my degree, I want to move to New York in my twenties..idk if that helps? Lol

    So the choice is between a subject you really like but find difficult and a subject you've not done before and have no experience with? I think you should stick with geography and try to work harder. Picking a new subject at A level is always risky, it might work out but it might not. Better the devil you know, as they say.

    Also, sorry to burst your bubble, but moving to the United States is pretty much impossible unless you can get an American employer to sponsor your visa, which hardly ever happens.
