    Hi everyone,

    I am new to TSR but have decided to join because I am at a cross road. Upon receiving my GCSE results I have been offered a place at a sixth form to study English Literature, Sociology and Psychology. On the other hand a college has also offered me a place to do a BTEC extended diploma of applied science.

    Even though I love science I am less enthusiastic about taking this on, especially because it is a BTEC, and my experience with BTEC (despite being at a different facility and at GCSE level) was quite poor. Really and truly I am just looking for advice about career paths and degree options available. Just to be clear most sixth forms wont allow me to do the science A-level or extended diploma, where as the A-level route I can get into a lot more sixth forms... but only in humanities and social sciences and I've never really considered that path before. I just don't know what career paths these A-levels can carry me to.

    Just wanted to say thanks for joining The Student Room: welcome on board!

    How's it going so far? Found what you need? Below I've listed a few things you might fancy trying on TSR. If you've got any questions, add them to the TSR news, help and feedback forum.

    Put your work head on:
    No matter what level or subject you're studying, you'll find someone on TSR who can help. Find your subject in the Study Help forum and ask a question or visit our brilliant revision section for help and advice. And if you're planning on going to university, you have to visit our uni applications forum. It's full of people who can help you through the whole process.

    Take it easy:
    You know there's more to TSR than studying, right? In Hobbies and Interests you'll find people talking about everything from the latest football scores through to what mobile phone to buy next. Or how about the Debate and Current Affairs forum? Latest news, politics, education...it's all fair game in here.

    That's just a taster, of course. To find even more conversation, head to the Forums page and find a place to start up your own discussion.

    Enjoy the site!
