    I am doing the last year of my GCSE’s. I was thinking of doing Maths, Biology, psychology,and health and social care. I don’t even know when I have to chose but I want to be prepared so can you give me your opinion please.

    The Maths and Bio is good- they're facilitating subjects, meaning they keep your options open for university

    Hi!! I think you should choose the subjects you feel passionate about! Obviously, it also depends on your grades and predictions. Don’t hesitate to ask your teachers for advice! I am convinced that they will give a broad perspective of your aptitudes and strengths

    Go with what you think is best and you'll know you'll enjoy. That way, you're chances of getting better grades increase and you won't want to start changing courses after you start college
    As said above, biology and maths are good for uni applications, but if you can't stand them, then I would look for alternatives instead
    Hope this kinda helped x

    I would pick one or two A levels with BTEC which consists 3 A levels and easy if you are great at organising and meeting deadlines.

    We can’t advise you without knowing what it is you want to do in the future, in terms of University course or future career.

    Maths, Bio, and Psychology are a good mix that opens quite a few doors. I’d recommend against taking 4, as it’s only 3 good grades that are needed. Health and Social Care generally isn’t a very respected A-Level at all, but if you think you’d enjoy it and would get a good grade, then that’s an important factor.

    It’s worth nothing depending on the Uni and course you wish to do, a BTEC isn’t considered in place of an A-Level.

    However, for many as it is.

    Just something for the OP to consider.

    I would like to do a nursing or midwifery course but then that could all change

    Then I say Maths and Bio are definitely a good choice if you enjoy them. If Health is something you feel you want to take passionately, go for it, but otherwise I'd recommend choosing another facilitating subject if you want to keep options open
