I think I'm looking to go into a career in journalism, but don't want to go to uni. I finish my GCSE's next year (2017) and am wondering which A-Levels to do after school. I think English Lit is a definite, but for the others I have no clue. Also, was wondering if there are any courses I can take post-16 to do with journalism? Thanks!

Honestly, it doesn't matter as long as you take humanities. I recommend stuff like History, Geography, maybe even a language. As long as you enjoy it you should be fine.

It really depends on which type of journalism you're into? Journalists don't write about everything, they usually specialize. So for example if you're into politics, Government and Politics would be a good A Level. Think about what you're interested in and would like writing about.. is it Art, Business, Entertainment, Politics, Sport? Etc.
