My interest, favourite subjects and possible careers I want to take change every so often. I want to do something to do with computing half of the time but the other half of the time I want to go into environmental sciences. Firstly I don't know how to pick my a-levles and which ones to pick. Secondly most unis require me to do a maths a-level for either of the fields, which I am bad at or average at best,so do I just give up or do I just do a-level maths and somehow try to survive those 2 years.

Do something in the computing sector. It’s literally the future and more and more jobs will gradually become available as the years go on. Within 10 years we’ll have computer related jobs that we’ve never actually heard of now, that’s the level of advancement that field is going to undergo. I recently finished my GCSEs and I’m taking Computer Science, Mathematics and Economics.

What grade do you think you will get in maths GCSE? If you think you won't get a B probably don't bother with the A level. You can still do environmental sciences without maths. Idk about computer science

I know that future is in the computing sector however there is also a problem of global warming

I really didn't think maths A level was too hard, but maybe that's just me.

Ok that's good, if you get a 7 I think you should be good enough. With hard work you should be able to get a good grade. Do you like maths?

I just looked at a couple of uni's entry requirements for you and they don't all insist on maths A level. I presume you will be doing computing A level? What are your other subject options?

I relate with the not knowing what you want to be in the future part, though I guess it's natural
