    Hi all,
    I have to start thinking about A-level options.

    The three that I'm thinking of doing are:
    1) Geography
    2) Computer Science
    3) Chemistry/Maths/Economics

    Are these option a good choice together?
    I'm wanting to do Geography/Geology or something to do with ICT after A-levels.
    I changed my mind about Graphics as after researching you are very limited with career paths.

    Either geography/geology or something ICT related or programming/computing.

    Hello. The key thing to remember, provided you research whatever A-Levels are required/recommended for your chosen degree, is that grades are more important than subject choice. However, taking 2 "facilitating" subjects (English Lit, History, Geography which you have, Maths, Chem, Bio, Physics, A language) will generally open more doors for you.

    I’ve picked maths chemistry business and phsycology is that a good combination as I want to do something related with business and if not interested I can something else related with maths and chemistry because I’m good at those subjects

    Yep! You’ve got 2 facilitating subjects, and your other 2 subjects match up with what you want to do.

    Ace your grades and you’re good to go!

    I'm going to do programming after a levels and they usually require maths and physics, computing is not necessary. but I think that you should definitely pick maths, it's a facilitating subject that would help you to get in any course
