    Hi,
    Im currently doing my GCSEs in year 11 and I need to pick my A levels quite soon. Im thinking of taking English Literature, Maths and Economics so far but im still deciding with Government and Politics. The exam board my sixth form uses for it is AQA.
    Has anyone here done the course or currently doing it and if so how are you finding it and how difficult is it to get a high grade in?

    Thankyou

    It's really easy for Edexcel in year 12 anyway; if you watch the news and keep up with current affairs you can breeze through with As all the way, interesting content as well that's fun to learn about.

    You already have two solid facilitating subjects (Eng Lit and Maths), so I'd go for it if you're confident and going for a degree in PPE (I assume you are with those A-Levels.)

    I hadn't really thought too much about what degree I want to go for (taking subjects mainly based on if i enjoy them and my strengths). Do you know much about PPE and what kind of jobs people who do the course go down?

    It's very prestigious as arts degrees go:

    Most go onto any of the following careers:

    - Politician (obvs)
    - Journalist (also obvs)
    - Investment Banker
    - Lawyer

    It's not called the "Passport to Power" for nothing
