Choosing my A levels Watch

    • Thread Starter

    So, the time has come for me to begin choosing my A-levels and I don't know which I would like to study. Basically, I would definitely take Maths(which I just love) and Spanish (also a favourite of mine). Then I'd go for either Economics, Psychology or Government and Politics as my third option, adding on Further Maths or Chemistry if I decide to take a fourth. Problem is, I'm not sure what to go for. I haven't a clue what I want to do in the future, but at univeristy something with Economics and Languages joint sounds ok, or maybe Maths and a language...? But tbh I'm not sure.
    So, any knowledge about those subjects and anything that helped you choose your a-levels?

    I do not envy that decision making time, when I was choosing my A Levels I felt like I had so many choices but was so limited at the same time! When I started my A Levels after a month I changed two of my subjects, so the most important thing to remember is that they are not set in stone! If you take a subject then find you dont like it its not the end of the world, however getting it right first time feels pretty good. My advice is that you look at the specifications of your subjects on the exam board site (your school will know these) and have a brief look at the topics they teach, this will give you an idea of what you will be learning for the 1/2 years you take it. This is important as you may think you will like the subject but all the topics are all wrong for you or vice versa! Also think about what interests you the most and what you feel compelled to do, you may not get this opportunity again so do what you think you will love!
