    I’m currently at GCSE and we’re choosing our a levels, but i don’t know what to do, there are so many subjects I would love to continue with but it’s difficult to decide on just 4.

    My predicted grades are :
    English Language - a*
    English Literature - a*
    Maths - a*
    Further Maths - a*
    Biology - a*
    Physics - a*
    ICT - a*
    RS - a
    French - a*
    Geography - a*
    Art - a

    My favourite subject is English Literature, and I would love to take it on to A-Level, but i’m not sure that it would be relevant to a degree I would want to do, since i currently am unsure about my future.
    Possibilities for degrees include : neuroscience, forensic science, maths, law or something like philosophy and ethics.
    However, a big issue is the fact that i do not study chemistry, and would require this at a-level in most cases for neuroscience and forensics.
    Also, my school doesn’t offer Further Maths, and i’m pretty sure it’s a requirement for most maths degrees, so what can i do about that.

    If anyone has any ideas about a degree/career i should do, please let me know.

    All help with choosing A-Levels is appreciated!

    Rwo wasy.

    1. Decide on hob, then id degree, then id A levels needed.
    2. ID degree and ID A levels needed.

    For Neuro then sometimes 2x stem may be enough. If not then a foundation year cna get you past the chemistry hurdle.

    For maths then they will require A* as they realise not eberyone gets offered FM. Also other stem helps like Physics.

    Look at these links.

    Imo great A levels are English Lit, Maths Chemistry and Biology.
