    I chose double award health and social care and sociology as my a-level choices and have completed my AS year. I absolutely live and breathe health and social care and would love to do midwifery in university. However, I decided almost instantly that I absolutely hated sociology. I hated the content and no matter how hard I tried all of the information I learnt in lessons went right over my head. I achieved an AB in health and social care and want to push myself to gain an AA in this subject, but I got an E in sociology and will be dropping it and picking up a new a-level subject next year. Does anybody have any recommendations on what new A-level I should pick up? I'm terrified of making the same mistake I have with sociology...

    A Level Biology is required by some universities for Midwifery, so I would definitely consider that

    Hi, why don't you try one of the sciences, more specifically biology or chemistry

    They honestly care more about work experience. Visit the UCAS website and it will give you ideas about subject choices
