You can get good jobs with those subjects! At the end of the day, you're taking the A-levels and it's your future. Does she not want you to take them or something?

I'm missing something. Anyone care to explain what blue coat is? Is it a school or curriculum?

OP your mum is just concerned about your future. We all get jobs and if lucky we get to decide on a career. Your mum presumably just wnats you to get good grades, but you could do that by studying English, languages science or music.

You cna stuidy one of those at Uni and you cna find a job that makes use of that as well. I'm not seeing your problem.

After your mum realises that you really want to do those subjects, she'll probably be very supportive after. I think what you should do is do your research. Find out some courses that you think you like. Of course, naturally, this usually means having some sort of career bubble in mind - for example if you're doing biology, chemistry, and maths but aren't sure if you really want to do medicine, look at other career paths in that sort of field such as biomedical sciences or even chemical engineering - it really depends on you.

So what do you think you're going to do now?

The problem is that I don't want to go to blue coat ( it's a school . ) and also she's not going to let me do music or languages 😩

Blue coat sounds like a good school. Why dont you want to go? If you have a chance of better grades, then go.

What do you want to do at University or as a career?

You should study things that can help you with a career and also that you enjoy. Music is quite specialist, so youd need to think if you wnat to do a music degree. If you wnat a career in music then youd neevd to be very good.
Nothing stopping you keeping it as a hobby.

Talk to your teachers, even the new ones at blue coats. They can give you careers advice. This shows languages are regarded as facilitating subjects by RG Unis. Its importnat you do the A levels you will get the best grades for. That will help you get into the best unis.

Show your mum this

Some advanced level subjects are more frequently required for entry to degree courses than others. We call these subjects ‘facilitating’ because choosing them at advanced level leaves open a wide range of options for university study. These facilitating subjects are:

• Biology
• Chemistry
• English literature
• Geography
• History
• Physics
• Modern and classical languages
• Maths and further maths

Is it something you plan to continue on to uni? If so, you'll just have it take it anyway. If not, you can always keep it as a hobby and an extracurricular. These are your A-levels, not hers, and it's your future and career. Maybe you could come to a compromise by going to a better sixth form that you wouldn't mind going to, or taking a subject that she would like you to take and the rest your choice. Languages are a very good option, and look really good on you. If it's something you'd get a good grade in, emphasise that to her
