So, I'm in Year 11 and I have to start really thinking about what I want to do for A-Levels since all the local Sixth Forms and Colleges all seem to want really early application, but the trouble is that I'm really stuck as to what to take.
I'm pretty set on taking 4 A-Levels, and I know that these will definitely include French and German but it's the other two I'm having problems with: I can't decide whether to do English Language and Politics or Biology and Chemistry, or a mixture.
I'm worried that taking three language based subjects will be a little too much and not look good for university, although I really like the course content in English Language and it covers loads of things that I'm interested in. I'm also a little concerned that my grades won't be good enough at GCSE to allow me to get good grades at A-Level (I want to go to a Russel Group if possible); at the moment it's looking like I'll get a grade 7, and perhaps an 8 if I really cram and the exam content is good.
I love Politics, although I don't really know what that'll do for me careers-wise which is my only issue.
I don't know if I want to take a scientific route or not but I really love Chemistry and Biology, so I might just take one of these? I'm thinking of possible working with the environment but I really don't know.
If anyone could give me some clarity that would be absolutely amazing because I really am stuck. I think I want to go into working in an embassy, if that helps.
A-Level choices? Watch

With your languages, English/history/politics would make a good combination. But don't just do this only for the fact it has a link with your other subjects, just do what you enjoy and if that is bio/Chem then go for it, it'll just mean you will have a variety of options to choose from.
