If you had to go back in time and re-choose your A-level choices or degree choice, would you pick the same choices again or different? If different, what would you change to?

I’d have changed my A-level choices to the “hard/core” sciences. I feel like it would have opened up a lot more doors and potential career choices for me.

I'd have taken up History as a 5th A Level. I did Maths, Further Maths, English, and Physics. Maths and FM were quite closely related so it wouldn't be like taking on a 5th traditional A Level. I like history. I might have chosen to do it at Uni, but idk, might still have chosen maths.

(ETA: I don't want to be that guy but, if A Levels hadn't been over sold to me in how difficult they were, I would have enjoyed taking a fifth. I found A Levels easy, mainly because I enjoyed what I did, so the subjects where I actually had to put work in (Lit mainly) were not a chore. At GCSE they told us "A levels are really tough" "A Levels are really hard" "you only do 3 because you won't have time for 4", but I found A Levels easy enough, even if I did have to put a modicum of work in. Now my Degree, that is mentally taxing, but A Levels? Nah. Does anyone else feel that way?)

I'm quite happy with my current degree choice, but I would definitely go back and change one of my A-Levels, said A-Level being Product Design to Business
