The Official Share your A level Options thread!

The new academic year is almost upon us. Holiday work is (hopefully!) almost completed and you've probably at least started to get together all the stuff you need to start A levelsin the next couple of weeks.
You may not have friends starting the same subjects, so why not make some by filling out these questions and looking out for people with the same or mostly the same subjects?

What subjects are you taking?
What exam boards? (if known)
What is your ultimate aspiration?
Any other comments?

If you find someone and want to talk, you can chat in the 2018-2019 year 12 thread

Hi everyone,

I'm doing as of now:

Maths - OCR
Further Maths - OCR
English Lit - Cambridge Pre-U
History - Edexcel

Also interested in economics and geography and don't know whether to switch one in order for a more balanced potential Oxbridge application. Any advice guys? Thanks

  • English literature (OCR)
  • English language (AQA)
  • Chemistry (AQA)

I aspire to study English literature (or possibly linguistics or English language) at a Russel Group university. I want to pursue a career in teaching English in the future and spread my love and passion for the subject to others.

No, I didn't take it. Even if I did, why would I tell anyone seeing as it's locked from the public?
