    I'm doing my GCSE's this year, and next year i'm doing my A-levels. For my A-levels i'm thinking about taking music, psychology, English literature and either chemistry or media. But I don't actually know what I want to do as a career, any ideas?

    At this stage, you don't need to know exactly what you want to do. When I was you're age....I'll save you the boredom lol.

    I think now it's more important that you select A-level subjects that you're interested in and that would leave your career options relatively open. Then, focus on doing well in your A-levels? whilst taking part in extra curricular activities and attending insight days for different fields.

    I think you've made a great shortlist for your A levels. I would pick chemistry over media in order to balance out the arts and social sciences with a physical science. It would compliment psychology well and leave your career opportunities more open.

    Don't give it too much thought into it. Work hard in the moment and enjoy it. You've got plenty of time to find inspiration and ideas. Best of luck.

    As it stands it you can do anything with your life from becoming an Alchemist to becoming the next 'The Alchemist' (musician/producer).

    Yeah, I think i've still got a few years to figure everything out, hopefully some sort of plan falls into place. I agree, that's why I chose subjects that are kinda different from each other, as I want to keep my career options pretty open.
    Yeah, I think I might take chemistry, and if it is too difficult I can switch it for media within the first few weeks of sixth form. But hopefully it'll be fine.
    Thank you! (:
