    This thread is mainly for Year 10 students going to Year 11 in a few weeks.
    Though it'd be nice to share what it is you are planning to take for A-Levels and what you intend to do after in Uni.

    I'll start it off.

    A-Levels I want to take

    -History
    -Psychology
    -Philosophy

    I intend on taking History as a degree in Queens Mary and then doing a postgraduate in Journalism to become a Journalist.

    No other passion? What subjects do you enjoy? Their must be something other than ICT. You can get into ICT degree if you take Math and maybe Physics for A-Level

    So far I am planing to do Biology, Chemistry and Maths. However, I may switch or add Sociology or/and Spanish. Depending on whether I still want to pursue medicine or not.

    Past papers are key, as is actually understanding what you are learning. Not my advice, but from someone I know (A* Maths GCSE A* Maths A-level, Cambridge degree).

    As someone who self studied a lot of her AS level in maths, the way I did it was to go through the textbook, then do a past paper, recover anything I got wrong, then do another paper, and continue that cycle until I'm getting 90% or more.

    I swear the only types of people on here are the: Maths, chemistry, physics ones, and the English, history, sociology ones Sooo popular.

    I wish I was good at maths... got 2/80 in the end of year 10 mocks
