Help deciding on A levels for a media based career & Lit or Lang?Watch this thread
I want to go to a good Uni, but I don't know exactly what I want to study. I do aspire to go in to a media based career, whether this is advertising, marketing or some form of publication (magazine articles etc.) I'm really not sure due to the vast options.
I consider myself a very creative thinker, and quite an artistic person. I am interested in the more creative side of advertising and promotion, whether it be thinking of new ideas, designing them etc. I also am interested in journalism, social media and writing in general.
I'm currently down for A Level English Literature & Language, Media and History.
My strongest subjects are English and Media - these are certainties for me. History however, is simply filling a gap. I did want to study history, although over the course of summer I'm starting to opt against doing it, as I feel it's a subject that you need a passion for and I dread studying it. Due to option blocks, I'm limited to what I can really do. It’s really down to Business, Maths (not my strongest subject), Photography and History,
English Lit and Lang clashes with business, maths and photography, meaning I either split it or do history. Otherwise, I must choose between the two English subjects and do one of them on their own, although I really don't know the content in each subject.
I absolutely love creative writing, and a break from analysis so if either Literature or Language contains a lot of writing articles, stories etc. I would probably lean towards that.
I hope I haven’t been too vague in this post. My three main questions are as follows:
*Which uni degree would be best for me?
* Which of Business, Maths, History and Photography would be best for me?
* English Literature or English Langauge?
Apologies for the length of this post, and the lack of direction, I just can't make decisions!
