    Hello, I’ve applied and got offered a place at the sixth form of my choice but I still haven’t decided exactly what four courses I’d like to take. Originally, the courses I was interested in taking were fine art/graphics (still not completely sure which one to choose), photography, modern history and media studies. I do really want to end up doing something to do with graphic design and things like that, which is why I had thought of those. However I also really want to do biology because I enjoy it, even though I’m not the best at it. I was considering swapping media studies or biology because after looking at the course, I decided I wasn’t that into it anymore. I know that it would be good for my future career choice but I want something different, and it’s also the fact that I would have so much more coursework to do with media studies as well.I hope that makes sense and that someone can give me some advice, thank you

    Either look at what career you want or alternatively look at what degree you wish to do and then take A levels that you will need for the course an you can get high grades in.

    Biology tends to go well with Chemistry or Maths.
    For a design course then you will need a portfolio along with one or two relevant subjects.

    Media studies doesnt do much for your options and is weak academically.

    Have a look at these links.
