GCSEs to A Levels! Confused!¡

    • Thread Starter

    So my result day is in like a week and I have to choose my a level options. I only want to do three and one of those is definetly MATHS.

    However I am very confused on what the other two options should be. Like I literally have 0 idea.

    I was thinking if I get an A* for GCSEs maths I should take further maths and economics, but idk I can handle further maths as I've heard it's extremely hard.

    Idk if I should instead take a route towards science, like pick chemistry or physics, but idk if I'll get good in either, highest I could get is an A in both.

    Could you please give me some advice on what a levels I should take and what career path I should take because I honestly don't know whether to go strictly towards maths/ economics or science/ maths.

    Please suggest some possible career paths for both options I listed and some good jobs. Thanks (:

    It's not really going to be logical for people to fire good career paths and subject choices at you as everyone is different. You ideally need to sit down and think about where you wanted to be heading. When I was at school you had career advisers? Could you possibly speak to one of them?

    If you are that uncertain, then it would probably be ideal to pick subjects that are relevant in a number of courses so that you have a selection to choose from if you decide within your next year.
