    Hi,

    I have finished my GCSE's and got an A and 8 B's. I am going to study Geography, History, Physcology but I am struggling to choose my final subject.

    Basically I need to choose a subject; English Lit, Computing or Graphics and materials.

    I am leaning towards Graphics because I enjoy the process of making a product for a target market like I did for GCSE, but I feel if i choose this subject it wont fit in with any of the other subjects that I have chosen and I feel that i may foresee a problem with this in the future for when I choose a university course. Graphics tends to be linked with Art, and is not suited for me.

    So then I think that i should do English Lit, but I am not sure that I can cope with more essays to do that I will have to write for History and Physcology.

    I want to have a wide variety of subjects but I dont know if its best to at least have two subjects that match for when I am looking for university courses. I am not sure if ANY of these A Level subjects match.

    Can anyone throw some idea's or pointers in!

    Thanks

    I'd do graphics if you enjoy it thats all that matters you've got three other academic subjects to leave doors open to you but thats just my opinion.

    Go with the subject you enjoy, you obviously enjoy Graphics so your more likely to do well, than English for exmaple if you have so much workload already.

    If you're worried about essays in eng lit, dont be. history is far worse!! but i guess it depends on your teacher - i know I only had about 5 in the whole of AS, although i did more when it came to revision. history on the other hand I had one a fortnight at least. and eng essays arent too bad, so long as you've read the books

    and your subj combination is fine. you can drop one after AS so if you want to do graphics do graphics, but if it doesnt tie in with what course you want to do then you can drop it. people have weirder subj combos anyway - i know someone who did maths, physics chemistry and photography for AS!! do whichever you feel most inclined to do really!

    Thank you all for your thoughts, I have decided to choose graphics. To enjoy the subject seems to be the most important thing.

    Thanks again
