It depends what you have chosen and some idea what field of study you'd like to study. Most uni courses require one a-level relevant to the course and another 2 a levels elsewhere

What A-Levels are you currently doing? If you're undecided i'd recommend doing a mixture of more respected A levels (e.g. I chose physics, chem and maths because I was undecided) or possibly doing four and dropping one after yr 12 It's the beginning of term so there's time if you wanted to change for whatever reason, but mainly think about what interests you at the moment (e.g. essay subjects verses logic numerical subjects) ^-^

Quite a few unis offer a foundation year, where you apply with the same or slightly lower grades but are not bound to specific subjects. The foundation acts as a way to prepare yourself for anything you should knownbefore starting the course.
In my opinion (not sute if its a good 'un) as long as you chose your a-levels because you enjoy or excell in them, your career path will go on from there. Dont worry! 😀
There is a website (i think its either whatuni or whichuni) where u can put in your alevel subjects and it will suggest university courses, try that if you dont know what to study. Remember u dont have to go to uni!
Good luck!
