    try balancing subjects you're good at and subjects you enjoy; a levels are hard so you need to be interested in the content and genuinely want to learn. Also think about what you want to do/ study after a levels and see which subjects could relate to that. ( I realise thats a massive question, but if it helps I've just started my a levels and I'm still not completely decided on what to do at uni).

    What sort of job do you want in the future? What are your current options, what do you keep changing them to? What grades are you predicted at GCSE?

    From personal experience, I know that you shouldn't force yourself to do subjects that you think you should do, when you don't actually enjoy them. Don't feel like you should do particular subjects, just because your friends or family are pressuring you to do them. Unless you want to do something like medicine at uni (where you need specific subjects), don't stress too much about your choices. Just pick the subjects that you enjoy the most, and, if you enjoy them, you will do well at A-Level, which will open more doors for university

    if it makes you feel any better you can probably ask to change subjects after results day.

    I currently love studying Product Design at GCSE and feel as though because it is something I enjoy, but the subjects that go well with Product Design are either Physics&Maths or an Art based subject. I definitely don't want to do maths or an art-based subject. I am not sure about physics cuz people say its but but i dont know :/

    they don’t necessarily have to go together (i know someone who has taken psychology, maths, english lang and physics) some of those go together but not as a whole and still went to uni, is there not any subjects you’re certain on ?

    I am certain on Product Design and other subjects I like are biology, chemistry and English but i'm considering physics so it complements product design so I can go into the engineering route as an option but not to sure about the maths

    i’m thinking of engineering too !! i would say definitely do physics if u like it & maths would help a lot but don’t do it if you don’t think you’d enjoy it, maybe have a look at some universities and see which a levels they look for in specific courses
