    I'm not really sure what career I want exactly but I know I want to do something in writing, either journalism, screenwriting, fiction writing, documentary making, video journalism... yeah, you get the picture. I am doing English Lit and Modern History alevels for definite but I'm unsure about a third, possibly fourth choice. I quite like the sound of film studies because I'm considering going into that field. Also, politics because it works well with history and journalism I'm told. And French is an option because I'm doing well at it for GCSE? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
    Also, I would quite like to go to university.
    Thanks again

    maybe do english lit, mod history, film studies and french. the first three tend to be more essay based subjects and being able to speak a second language fluently can help you a lot in journalism.

    Look at degrees/unis you're considering and make sure you meet the entry requirements. Outside of that pick subjects you enjoy/are good at.
