Good morning ,
Hope you're well , i want to take physics in A-level as i need it to be a pilot therefore i was wondering if it is better for me to take triple science for it , currently i am a combined science student , i need suggestions on this , what do you guys think is better for me to do ?
And subjects to pick in A levels too.
Thanks.

Hi! I hope that you're doing well too. If you mean to ask to take triple science in GCSE, I think that is definitely preferred in most high schools and for unis but they don't acknowledge GCSEs as much as A Levels so don't dwell too much on it. But, if you're talking about taking chem, bio and physics for A Level, that is a whole other thing.

First, you need to really think about whether you really like science that much to do it at school full time. And in your case, honestly you could take maths and physics- as this is probably necessary to become a pilot. And then choose whatever you want as a third A Level. But make sure you check uni websites for entry requirements for specific subjects to be extra sure. Good luck!

I mean in my Triple science class most people, don't know what they want to be. Some want to be pilots, architects, start a business, prosecutor, the list goes on.

The one thing, however, they all have in common is that they all told me that, it looks good on your GCSE when you go to college and then Uni. Yes, it is a bit irrelevant, but it is preferred. You need to be enjoy science, to pursue triple!
But for A levels you will need to do Physics and Math 100% so I don/t know, you will have to look online at university's and that! x

You can do Sciences A levels without having taken separate Sciences but getting settled in to them with be slightly easier if you have the extra knowledge that comes with separate sciences - but teachers will not expect everyone to have taken separate. Once you have completed science A level(s) no one will care in the slightest whether you did separate Sciences or combined science.

A-level choices won’t really make a difference if you want to be a commercial pilot. Some recruiters have a preference for science or mathematical subjects. But there’s nothing in commercial pilot training that is beyond GCSE level knowledge.
