    For my GCSEs I achieved:
    Maths B
    English Literature B
    English language C
    Core science A
    Additional Science B
    Religious Studies B
    History B
    Business Studies A
    French A

    Overall; 3 A's, 5 B's & 1c

    For my A level choices I picked History, Government & Politics, Economics and Sociology.
    I wanted to know:
    what are these subjects like? I.e. How hard are they and what do they consist of,
    What they could lead to in the future, careers etc
    If they are respectable to University's
    What I could study at Uni with these subjects
    And all round if these are good subjects thanks

    If you get good grades you will be fine.

    You obviously won't be able to go into any STEM degrees/careers as easily or without retraining a little, but you'd be able to apply to pretty much any social sciences degree with those subjects (that's a very broad spectrum of subjects).

    That then provides you with thousands of different career opportunities. It would be easier to list what you couldn't do.
