    I plan on going travelling after school with a mate and getting some work out in different countries like Thailand, Malaysia and Australia etc. I then plan on coming back and taking over the family 'tour guide' business. What A levels shall I do?

    Are you the guy who made that thread about whether he should choose Business Studies, Art, and Spanish at A-level, then go travelling and get jobs in different countries before taking over the family business around two-three weeks ago?

    Have a backup plan and tailor your A-levels to it. How are you going to get work in different countries when you only speak English and plan not to stay long, though? Do you need to equal your UK studies in whatever countries you want to work in before getting a job? (Few people know what A-levels are outside the UK and other countries which take A-levels.)

    if you think you would enjoy it, then go for it. i don't know anything about business studies because i don't do it, so i can't tell you whether it would be useful or not.
