Yeah I think whenever you are unsure it's good to take a wide balance of subjects. I would say go with that and then speak to a careers advisor as soon as you can in case you need to switch a subject

(Original post by sam_2910)
I have no idea what I want to do in the future, which is why I’m thinking on choosing subjects which I am interested in and feel I will do well at if I put in hard work. I am thinking of choosing;

-Maths
-Spanish
-ICT

I enjoyed these subjects the most at GCSE and (depending on this years situation with grades) think I will get good grades in these subjects (hopefully anyway lol)

Although they are completely different subjects, they are good subjects to get an A-level in (Maths and Spanish)

Like I said, I have no idea of what I want to do in the future (I have a part time job atm which I enjoy) so that doesn’t help in choosing subjects

The a level teachers for them subjects are one who I think are good teachers and helpful so that’s a plus.
Those subjects sound really cool! Obviously the final decision is yours at the end of the day but it is important to get other peoples opinion.
For me the main 3 questions you should ask yourself before finalising your options are
1) Do you enjoy the subject
2) Are you good at the subject
3) Will this subject help me later on in life- this may not apply to you as you don't know what to do.

Don't panic the mix of subjects will keep your options open and it is ok to not know what you want to do many people are in the same boat as you.

I would suggest looking at Computing or Computer Science than ICT A level as I have come across a couple of universities who dont like ICT. Unfortunately I cannot recall who. Other than that choose whatever you will enjoy.

I have spoken to our careers advisor and she said the same thing, to go with them subjects if I’m unsure of what to do in the future.
