    I've chosen to do A level English Literature, History and Biology. (I still have plenty of time to change my options around)

    I've been recently getting cold feet about my options and what it can do for me. I don't really know what I want to be when I'm older but I know I want to be above average, I want to be making good money in a job that I would really like. However my concern is, will my options give me the opportunity to create that lifestyle? Would it be best for me to do Maths and Physics to get an engineering degree or become a doctor or something along that line. these type of jobs seem high in demand and can lead to a good career. I don't want to be stuck on a desk job doing a 9-5 working towards someone else's dreams. I want to be doing my own thing whilst also seeing the world and having memorable experiences.

    Sorry for rambling but I'm really worried for my future. I don't want to make my family disappointed whist also not making myself disappointed. If you've had an experience like this, I would really like an opinion or advice. Thank you.

    I'm not sure what advice to give tbh. I've just been deciding my options as well. I'd say pick subjects that you either passionate about or you are good at and then you'll find a way to make money using the A-levels that you chose.

    hope this helps 😊
