    I am interested in teaching as my future career. I am unsure if I want to teach Primary School, or teach Religious Education at a secondary school. However, this is something that I can decide closer to the time.
    For now, I am unsure of what to choose for my A-levels. I initially wanted to do Religious Studies, English Lit & Lang, and Psychology, but now I am unsure of whether I should stick to these. I have a few choices I am struggling to make:
    - Replace English with BTEC Health & Social Care
    - Replace Psychology with BTEC Health & Social Care
    - Replace English with Sociology
    - Keep it as it is!

    I would like some help in deciding what choice to make. It would also be helpful if you have studied any of these A-levels and can tell me about your experience.

    Thank You

    Don't choose BTECs because they will reduce your chance accepting by good universities.

    If you can do Alevels then do Alevels. Avoid BTECs if you want to make it easier for yourself to get into a decent uni

    To be honest, it is only up to you as to what you want to study as it will affect your future. You can ask for some ideas on what these subjects can get you into, but you will have to research yourself as the ultimate decision will be yours. Asking your subject teachers might be a good starting point.
    If you are really enjoying your chosen subjects, you can get a degree on them. I know a lot of universities offer Politics & Business as a degree. For example - http://www.aston.ac.uk/study/undergr...tics-business/
