    Political Ambassador
    Most of my friends are really specialising in their A-level option since they all mostly want to Medicine, Psychology, Engineering etc. so they're all taking the options they need for their courses

    I will rejoice when I no longer have to sit a physics class. Or bio or chem. I hope to study either Law, Economics, or like a combined degree or something. All the ones I'm considering don't have specific A-Level requirements (although Law requires an LNAT etc. etc.).

    I announced that I'd be choosing Maths, History, Computer Science and French A-levels. Then I was hit with "they're not really related to any degree?" [I want to study Law but I'm keeping my options open] "Computer Science on its own isn't worth anything, you know? If you want to do a degree in CS you need double maths too"[I don't wanna do a CS degree] "you should do a science. You're really good at biology, why don't you do that?" [because I am already doing a science (CS) and I don't want to biology]

    Is keeping my options really a bad thing? I love maths, I need something essay based for Law, and I am really interested in Computer Science (my dad is a computer scientist). Maths, a science, a humanity and a language. Is it really that bad?
