    Currently I’ve applied for college and been accepted to do business, media & textiles but I’m having second thoughts. Everyone has told me that those subjects go really well together but business is starting to sound really boring and quite difficult. I’m taking two other subjects that require a lot of time to be put into them because of the coursework and i find it really hard to revise if I’m not interested in a subject.

    Criminology is listed as an a level at my college but it’s the wjec level 3, will this even get me into university’s alongside my other two a levels?

    Business will help me with my future but criminology is just so much more interesting in my opinion.

    If anyone has done the criminology and/or business a level please tell me if they are interesting/hardwork/complex ?

    I was tempted to pick criminology but because it wasn't an actual A-Level I didn't go for it. You can still do criminology at uni (if that's what you wanted to do) without taking it.

    I'm in my final year at uni studying Criminology. I would imagine Criminology at A level will be much the same as 1st year Crim at uni. I would do Business at College and Crim at uni as great.

    Yeah that’s part of the reason I’m not sure i should take it either but ag the same time I don’t even think there is much of a difference between a levels and qualifications equivalent
