    I have been looking at my GCSE's and I'm looking at what subjects I want to commit to, to achieve the highest grades possible. I have a few ideas about career paths I would like to follow, such as a nutritionist or something in the creative industry. What subjects would be good to get an A in, to get on the sort of path to becoming a nutritionist? I hope this all makes sense.

    Hi there,

    Great question!

    In all honesty the core subjects that you do will keep most of your career options open which are subjects like - Maths, English and Science (some schools have other compulsory subjects like ICT and a modern foreign language).

    When you look at most Nutrition degrees they look for 4-5 GCSEs at a C grade or above or in the new numerical grading system 4/5 and those subjects normally need to be Maths, English and Science.

    Your subject choices become more important at A-level/BTEC stage. Uni's will start to ask for specific subjects such as Biology and Chemistry for entry onto the degree course.

    GCSE subjects that you may find are useful to pick are Sport/P.E and Food Technology. For career paths in the creative industry Art and Design based GCSEs will be really beneficial.

    I hope that helps, if you have any further questions we are more than happy to help!

    Thanks - Sophie
