Heyy guys
I really want to take sociology, business and art at a levels but people say that art isn’t worth it but I’m really good at it and enjoy it also I have no stem subjects that I’m taking so that isn’t really too strong.
I’m really stressed out because I feel like my options won’t take me anywhere and my parents are even saying to pick stems but I’m really comfortable with studying sociology, business and art please can someone give me advice on my options

You have a really good range of options, which is good as it allows you to pick from a broad range of subjects (if you plan to go to Uni). Art A-Level is quite similar to the GCSE but requires a lot more independent work, so if you enjoy that is a good sign.

I want to do something like branding, interior design, graphic design and advertising but I don’t mind looking into teaching

Thank you it’s just that everyone is putting down my options

In that case, art would be very helpful, perhaps more helpful than business even. Keeping your options open is a good thing, but for most of the careers you're interested in you'd need 1 art subject. I'd stick with your options if I were you

Obviously it depends on the exact career you go into, but there's definitely opportunity for high-paying jobs whichever A-Levels you choose. I'd do some more in-depth research and take a look at average salaries etc if you want to know the specifics!

Some top universities actually list their preferred subjects. I know LSE, UCL and Sheffield do. I havent checked them recently but they used to list Art and Sociology on them and usually they require 2 choices off their preferred subject list.

Stem subjects do provide more option but unless you are interested in things like Medicine, Engineering, Computer Science, Economics or similar you dont need them. You should only take a subject if are you good at it and it is something you will enjoy.

Check the university entry requirements for the kind of subjects that you are interested in. If there is a specific subject requirement then you will need to take it. Otherwise take subjects that you will enjoy.

The Russell Group have a booklet called informed choices. You can put in your A level subjects in that and it will advise you which options are available with your subjects. I attach a link for you to look at.

Your A level choices are ideal for those options.

Ignore the stem snobs. A stem subject wouldn’t improve your application for degrees or jobs along those lines - and for some of those careers a stem subject would be far far less use than the subjects you have chosen.

These are all possible: https://www.theuniguide.co.uk/a-leve...ociology?o=210

If it's Fine Art then just change - it's YOUR life - listen to your own heart.
