    I’m just curious to find out (because I’m nosey lol) which subjects people are taking, whether you’re in year 11 and deciding or if you’re in sixth form and already doing them!

    I’m in year 11 and will most likely take biology, sociology and English literature (is this a good mix?)

    I just thought it would help me out and others too to see what other people are doing and what they think of their choices, as well as any possible career goals so let me know because I’m interested to hear from you!!

    Well, I am taking History Geography and Law. Determining if they're a good mix comes down to what you want to do when you leave college/Sixth form

    Is History, English Lit, Economics and German a good mix?
    I think I'd like to do PPE at Oxford or something like that but I might do French/Maths/Geography instead of the other a levels.

    I don’t know much about that course but those all sound like good subjects! Maths might be worth considering though I reckon, good luck!

    Great!!

    To be honest I hate maths but I'm not too bad so I'll do it if I have to.
    Yours sound like a good mix- what do you want to do after? Good luck with them

    Thanks! I’m considering a career as a nurse but I’m not quite sure yet so I tried to keep my options pretty varied so I have lots open to me - I also chose the subjects I enjoy the most. I’m also considering a sociology degree but I don’t really know yet! I really like the idea of going to Oxford or Cambridge though.. we’ll have to see what happens!
    Also since you already have three facilitating subjects that leave you a wide range of options open I think you’d be fine if you didn’t do maths. I’m guessing you have already but it’s definitely worth checking details about the entry requirements on the Oxford website!
    Best of luck! :-)

    I’m thinking of nursing or a sociology degree but I chose those options as I enjoy them as well as that they leave quite a few options open for me! Best of luck with medicine! :-)
