    I'm currently in year 11 at school doing my last year of GCSEs. Obviously this means that I need to think about what I'm going to do next year. I've decided that I want to go to sixth form but I'm having trouble deciding what subjects to do. Maybe it's early to think about this but I don't think it's such a bad idea to think about it. I'm either concidering doing stuff like psychology, biology and sociology- which goes together quite well. Or... I might go for the complete oposite and go for Music, Drama and Art - which I also enjoy.I have no idea what to do wether I should go for one of the above or a combination of both? I find that with Biology and Psychology it might open more doors to stuff like nursing and psychology whilst the success rate with Music and Drama are quite low. Have you got any advice for me?

    Heyya, I'm currently in sixth form studying Music, Geography and English Literature. They are all completely opposite subjects and they don't relate so you can pick a range of subject which don't relate as long as you enjoy them, thats the main thing. You don't go two weeks into the subject and then regret it.

    I am currently in the same situation as you, but I think GCSE grades are a good way of deciding what you want to choose. You might want to consider something you do well in as well as how much you enjoy it. Also try asking your parents or close friends what they think you would enjoy as they might know you better than you know yourself. Good luck

    I would recommend sociology. I did it and it was a very interesting subject. Just do what you think you will enjoy and which subjects come more naturally to you

    It honestly depends on what you'll think you'll enjoy, as basically everyone has said above

    I'm currently in lower sixth and studying biology, chemistry and art. It's a weird combination, but I wanted to fit what I need to be a vet, and also my other passion which also doubles up as a back up plan if everything else fails
    All A Levels are hard, so that's not really a deciding factor. However, I can safely say that I'm enjoying art a lot more than the sciences, and I'm getting better grades as well!

    You still have time to decide, but I would defo go with what your heart says. Grades can be a good indicator, but hey, I got a 9 in English language and despised the bloody subject :v

    Hope everything goes well for you. Good luck for your exams next summer! X
