Hi, so originally for A Level I chose to do the follwing:
French
German
Geograhy
Business Studies

However I'm having other ideas and now I'm thinking about doing:
French
Politics
Geography
Economics

I have no idea what I want to do in the future but I want to do a variety of subjects. Can anybody advise me as to what would be a good set of
options? Thanks

Take a look at the facilitating subjects. If you are unsure what you want to do it’s best to keep your options open and chose subjects from there. Languages at A level are said to be very hard so you will need to be committed. But do what you enjoy, forcing yourself to do a subject you don’t enjoy will result in you not doing very well. Hope this helps.

It's hard to say without knowing more about your predicted grades and why you are choosing to do 4 A levels rather than the more common 3.

I agree with the idea of switching Business studies for Economics (unless you are a weak student). Economics is generally seen as more academic.

What exam board for geography? Politics would be very helpful if you were to do AQA geography (I don't know about other exam boards) as there's a compulsory topic on global governance and systems. If you have a particular affinity for languages, go for 2 languages, but I wouldn't recommend it as it is a lot of work.
