What advice would you give to someone deciding what a levels to take? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm have to apply for college in a few weeks and I haven't a clue about what to take.

    I love English Literature and photography but not sure they mesh well. I'm thinking about taking pychology with English lit and I want to do photography as a subject i can look forward too. I'm not sure about any other subjects, maybe business or biology?

    Haven't a clue on what career I'm interested in, something productive, I don't do well sitting down all day. No degrees in mind currently. I just want to make sure that what I pick i won't regret. Any advice?

    If you have no career in mind then I'd recommend you opt for subjects you enjoy.
    I, personally am doing Philosophy & Ethics, English Literature & Sociology.

    I think if you have the faintest idea of what you wanna go down to, any ambition whatsoever then look up universities and their requirements because for certain subjects e.g Medicine you would need certain subjects, but if not do what you enjoy. Photography and English Literature are a fine combo, Psychology and English Literature too. And anyway, the wider range of options you choose the more choices you'll have later when choosing a degree so honestly if you don't have a grasp of what you wanna do then opt for a variety of different options so you definitely have more to choose from when picking degrees etc at Uni.

    But honestly take a step back, consider all your possibilities and know that there's nothing wrong with picking a range of different options.
    It's your call to make so unless you're thinking of going into a certain profession then honestly go for whatever you think you'll enjoy - always time to change your mind 2/3 weeks after you start your course. Hope that helped.
