Without double award science will I do well in life?Watch
Hello! I have chosen my gcse subjects earlier this year but now I am facing some issues. In one block there was double award science and art (my school doesn’t offer triple award). I chose art as it is something I enjoy. From that decision it means I am taking single award science as it is mandatory. I have always loved cars my entire life and only now I have realised I wish to pursue a career in the automobile/ mechanics business. Which sucks now because you need double award and a physics A level to get into any college or university... and I cannot take on physics for A level considering I’m not doing double award. I truly love doing art, but without double award the chances of getting a successful job in any field or work is slim considering how important it is. I cannot even take any sciences on for A level.... what should I do??
This advice only stands if you will be living in the UK for college/ sixth form.
Normally GCSE single award science will not facilitate taking A-Level sciences at college.
However, you may find that BTEC courses such as Engineering OR even car mechanics may actually be of more interest to you. A L3 BTEC Engineering Extended Diploma is considered equivalent to 3 A-Levels by a large variety of universities.
If you don't like the idea of doing a BTEC, you seriously need to consider doing double science instead of art.
Which science subject are you doing?
