Hey guys, it's time to play a game.



List your A-level choices, and everyone else can rate them /10 and share some assumptions of the user based on their choices!

To kick it off this is what I studied ( a while ago now :lol: )

A-levels: History, Philosophy, Economics.

Abhinav3 Might be a little bit overkill. What are you planning to study? I'll rate a 4/10. Essay subject is the main thing-- else, a solid 7.

Maths, Further Maths, Physics
I've decided to buck the trend at my school and not study 4. Probably amounts to 2.5 A Levels considering all the overlap but seems senseless to take on more if these satisfy the requirements for all my subjects of interest.

Ooh. 2/10. You're right, Maths and Further Maths overlap a bit too much, and the inclusion of Physics makes your subject choices pretty much ENTIRELY maths based. My worst nightmare.

My A-Level subjects are Art and Design, Economics, Chemistry, and English Literature, although I also have a History of Art A-Level that I took outside of my school.

Those are very content-heavy subjects. Why are you taking 5?

I’m doing Bio, Chem and Maths so I can apply for medicine, I’m doing History as a fourth because I love it so much and I can’t imagine not continuing with it until the end of A-Levels and I’m doing Arabic because I speak the language fluently and I thought ‘why not?’ . I’m not doing it because I think it’s going to give me an advantage - I know that universities don’t care whether you have 3, 4, 5 or whatever A-Levels but I love them all so much so that’s why!

Wholly agree with this. I plan to do Fine Art at university, so I only really need Art and Design - but I love my other subjects so much that I can't imagine not continuing with them! The university requirements don't really matter, just your own personal want to learn them.

Exactly!! I’m doing them for myself, not for a university . Fine Art is such a cool degree, good luck with that!!

If you replace biology with computer science or chemistry, it would've been a solid 9/10

You might want to consider if you will fare betterr with respect to keeping options open by having further maths, if those are what you want to study at university
