What subjects to choose for A-levels? watch

    • Thread Starter

    How do you know what subjects to choose for A-level without having any idea on what you'd like to do in the future, especially when the subjects provided are limited. I also have no idea what my interests are, although I'm into sports.

    Subjects provided:

    Art & Design
    Business Studies
    Computer Science
    English Language
    Global Perspectives & Research

    Thank you in Advance!

    Where are your strengths/what do you enjoy? Biology might be a good start if you enjoy sports.

    Out of those options I would do Bio, History and Geog. Will open a large variety of doors and they are facilitating subjects

    By the looks of it you don't have that many subjects to pick from, however I would say to choose the ones which you actually enjoy doing

    Doing one of the sciences or even both would be very useful. If you like sports then definitely do Bio.
    I also don't really know what I want to do in the future so I took Bio, Chem, Psy and Geography. Bio and Chem can open many doors, I did Psy because I enjoy it so maybe do one subject that you enjoy and can see yourself doing in the future. Eng Lang will look good especially for skills as it is useful for essay writing and reports. Maths is another good subject like the sciences however I think you should only do it if you think your good at Maths, my friend was good at Maths in year 11 but even she is finding it hard and wants to drop it.
    As the world is becoming more modern I think if you do Computer Science then you'd have a lot of job options in the future.
