Hi everyone,

I’m currently in Year 12 (AS Year) and taking Maths, Economics and Geography and I am unsure of what I can do and want to do after sixth form. So it would be appreciated if you guys could add ideas of the career options I can pursue in the future.

P.s. it would also be great if when you post the career option add university’s that specialise in that field.

P.s. it would also be great if you could tell me what path I can realistically go down with my A-Levels.

Apprenticeships
I’ve never really thought about doing an apprenticeship to be honest.

Why did you choose those A-levels, if you hadn't thought of how to use them in future?

Career options don't just rest on subjects; it's also how you want to work, such as in a team, independently, outdoors, in an office, shift work, being supervised or as a manager etc...

I agree with your point but they were the subjects that I enjoyed the most and the ones I was best at GCSE and also because they link really well with each other.

There are far too many options, Basically anything that doesnt involve life sciences. Here are just a few

Computer Science, Engineering, Accountancy, Business, Law, Politics, Geology, Town and Urban Planning. Here is a link to the Informed Choices from the Russell Group. You can put in your subjects and it will give you a list of courses you can apply for, Most universities offer the more popular course and you can look at UCAS course search which will tell you what universities offer them.
