I'm in yr 11 and have picked sociology, economics and Eng lit. I go to a grammar school and am one of the only people not doing a science or maths in 6th form. My parents think that my A-level choices are bad. Can you please tell me what kinds of jobs i can get with these a-levels? (so i can prove to my parents that they are good)

Grades get you into better unis.
Subjects get you onto certain courses.

If your A levels get you onto the course you want it is fine.
If the degree gets you into the job you want it is fine.

Read this and play about with these.

Which A levels?

You can pursue degree apprenticeships.
https://www.allaboutschoolleavers.co...pprenticeships
University:
You can pursue degrees limited to social sciences. Economics is pushing it without maths and you would not be able to go to the 'most reputable' universities for economics without this. However you can pursue Accounting & Finance, Business Management and any other social science. Honestly I regret not doing maths at A-level it truly opens doors if you are able to succeed.
Jobs:
You can apply for direct entry jobs doing entry level business/civil service roles.
