I’ve applied to a college to do Sociology, English and History but recently my science teacher told me I should do A-level science! I find science really interesting but I lean more towards the arts subjects but now I am considering doing all 3 science A-levels as I don’t know what career to do and I’ve been told science subjects are more valuable and open more career choices. Please give advice! P.S I have my college interview Wednesday 😐

nothing wrong with doing a mix of arts and sciences. don't let teachers pressure you into doing a certain subject though if you don't enjoy it.

The thing is I like both science and arts but I don’t want to take more than 3 A-levels!

Which subjects would you say you are best at and would enjoy more. Do you intend to go to uni, if so what subject area would you be looking at? What you do at A level either limits or enhances your choices in uni.

I’m a bit better at art subjects, but lately I’ve been finding the science subjects fascinating hence why I’m so keen to carry it on at a further level

I do an arts and humanities/STEM mix with three A-levels, granted that the combination has more arts and humanities subjects. It's not too bad at all.

What's wrong with sociology? From what I hear, it sounds appealing if you're someone that's into that kind of stuff.

My friend does English Literature, History, Chemistry and Maths. If you do something like English Lit, Chemistry and Biology you'd have quite a few options.

If you do all the sciences it will get too much for you especially as they’re content heavy! I would choose what you like to do and if you don’t want to do science in the future then it’s not for you! A-Levels are 10X harder than GCSE I wouldn’t advise you to listen to your teachers either, it’s your future/life not your teachers! They won’t be there in 2 years time sitting the A-Levels for you!
