Better to do A-levels you enjoy or A-levels that may be more useful? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    History, english and politics. These are my choices at the moment (am in year 12 btw) and i think they are fairly decent choices. I love history and politics is something i think i'd be good at. English is fun i guess, though not something i'm exceptional at or anything (I got an A for lang and a B for lit) but it would come in handy as i intend on going into some kind of political journalism.

    Economics is another subject i could try out. Its not really my sort of thing and the teachers arent all that great either but it would come in handy for my career.

    Anyway, i'm interested in your thoughts. Is it better to do something you enjoy and could get better grades at or something which is kinda dull but could benefit you in your career?


    Do what you love doing. If I was you I would choose Economics. More opportunites would start to open up for you.

    Good luck in your A-Levels
