    I've got an interview for a sixth form that I applied for. And just found out that the sixth form encourages students to take 3 A levels instead of 4.

    So now im really stuck on what I want to do, I know no choice is definite right now, seeing as I'll be having another interview after getting my GCSE results back, but i really just want a little peace of mind.

    Im looking towards doing:

    Biology
    Psychology
    Geography
    Sociology

    I dont know which 3 to choose, Im looking towards becoming a childrens nurse or primary school teacher. And I am currently taking geography and sociology for my GCSEs.

    I really enjoy biology at GCSE, and psychology sounds really appealing to me. Both sociology and geography have been enjoyable at GCSE.

    Any advice?
    Your experiences?

    Any info would be much appreciated. ☺

    My advice would be to look ahead a bit and see if there are any particular uni courses that interest you. Some will have requirements on what A-level subjects they want, so it could make your choice a little easier

    My situation was the same last year and well the thing iswhat you pick now is just a brief prediction of what you want to do since it won't be finalised till after your results. Think it over summer take a look at the ucas website and see what subjects are required for you may want to do in the future. Honestly depends on your results.

    Just have a quick check on unis websites to see if theres any a-levels in particular that they want. I dont think theres any particular a-levels for primary school teaching (at least there wasnt when i was going to apply) but i dont know about childrens nursing.
    Is there definitely no chance of doing the 4?

    If you are dead set on only doing the three then I'd suggest Biology, Geog and Psychology.

    That way you have two facilitating subjects to get into a good uni and also psych is slightly more respected than sociology (if only slightly).

    But yeah, point being, if you wanna go to a top uni do bio and geog as they are facilitating subjects

    The sixth form encourages 3 subjects over 4 because AS level exams no longer count towards the overall A level qualification, so they want us to focus on 3 subjects rather than do 4 the first year and then just drop one in the second year because its basically a 'waste of time' (in the teachers words).
