    Im faced with the decision in September what A level courses i choose to study and was wonderinf if anyone could give me their thoughts and opinions or even possibly advice on these and if they are the best decision.
    I was thinking about studying.
    - Business Studies A Level
    - English Language A Level
    - Sociology A Level
    I am unsure what career path i would like to follow but i am keen to go univeristy however im doubtful if this because of my low gcse predictions so will these options maximise the potential for me to attend an univeristy.

    We aren't able to decide which is the best A Level for you to take, that comes down to you. Especially if you are unsure as to what you want to study at undergrad. In that case, I would say study what you enjoy and think you may excel at.

    I had horrible GCSE's and choose subjects at A Level that I thought I may enjoy, and I did. As a result of that, I came out with good grades and ended up at a good university.

    Don't think too far ahead if you are unsure what your future holds. Just choose what you enjoy and may be good at.

    Best of luck!

    If you plan to head to university, then the job market in regards to your A Levels aren't entirely relevant. GCSE's are a stepping stone for A Levels, and A Levels the same for undergrad. I would start to consider what you could see yourself doing down the line, but don't let the potential of a job determine your A Level choices heavily, worry about that when you're choosing a degree. If you cannot find an A Level that you think you may really enjoy, choose one you're good at.

    Best of luck!
