    Hello guys. I am a gcse student and i am stuck with deciding on which a levels to take. I really like chemistry and could see myself taking it with maths for a levels. However i also like business and i could see myself as a manager in the future. i would also take business with english and maths.{for a levels}

    what drives me crazy is that if i go the business route and change my mind then i could say bye to any sciences in university .....however if i choose the chemistry/science route could i possibly take a business degree even tho i have science a levels???? because if i can then i'd rather take sciences and if i like it continue with it or change to business at university level.... that is if i can do that..... somebody help?? or any advice and suggestions?


    { also my father would go NUTS if i would go with business route since he is insisting on me becoming a doctor which wont happen because i hate biology. i repeat i ****ing hate that subject... and yeah i'm kinda scared on disaponiting him and to stand against his expectations because i am not my sister who is a perfectionist who is looking into medicine...}

    sorry if its too much what i wrote here....

    Take Chemistry - business studies is completely unccessary for management degrees; it's probably a disadvantage rather than an advanatage. That, and chemistry (along with maths) is probably the subject that's preferred for most degrees - ie anything medical, biological or chemical .

    There's still this idea that pure sciences are superior to social sciences (business, econ, etc) and it's really stupid tbqh.
    Even at A levels, the science teachers and some students usually looked down on us, the business students.
    I feel like business, can lead you to such a wide field. I'm not sure if this is the same for sciences but doing a business degree doesn't just lock you in the business field. You have good chances of getting into politics, international relations, behavioural sciences, etc.

    Do what;s best for you. Shouldn;t we also know by now that we need to do what WE want and not what our parents wants us to do?

    Have you considered further maths? I hear that can be required/useful at a few unis for economics. Plus with FM you are in a better position to do anything related with engineering or physics.

    I disagree, with a science subject (i.e. Physics) you are not limited to just physics or research, you can go into many things like consultancy, engineering-related roles, banking, business, or of course work in the field itself. Mainly because the skills in most science subjects are transferable to a lot of roles. With business, I feel it's the opposite, where you are actually more locked into one field (if at all). Furthermore, you don't usually need economics or business studies to apply for a business course (although they are still useful). Where as with science, you do usually need the specific subject to be taken at A Level.

    Just do what I did... Biology, Chemistry, Economics and Business If you do the wrong A levels it's not the end of the would as you could do a foundation year.
