Switching A-levels from Computer Science to...?Watch this thread
Anyone think this is a good idea?
Are you in year 13 right now? Would you have to take a gap year to do the extra A-level? I am a bit confused. I would recommend doing FM if your school offers it, as it will give you an advantage over schools that don't. Any of those options you suggested are good though.
I am currently in year 12 right now. I would be finishing Maths and Economics next year and then My third a-level the following year. I was thinking with that following year i would take a fast-track course which would allow me to attain 4 a-levels in total.
I've never rlly heard of a fast track course but a few of my friends do economics in uni and they did a range of things umm chemistry, maths, further maths, physics, English, cs
Tricky one. I would not recommend doing 2 A-levels in one year, especially as you would presumably be out of the education system? It would be difficult for you to study and manage your time in this way, but not impossible. I would suggest keeping comp sci and then doing the 4th A-level as a fast track (maybe FM) in an additional year. That way you will have 3 A-levels to rely on completed in 2 years. Instead of 2 crammed into year 14.
Yea, this is a good point. After viewing the requirements for BSc economics I may just do a fast-track in Business/Sociology just to have those 3 A-levels and not wanting to wither after doing another year of computer science.
Yes that is an option. You could do Maths and Econ, formally at college, then a 3rd fast-track A-level alongside that. That is definitely doable and will leave you with 3 A-levels for a UCAS application. Tricky parts are: getting a predicted grade for the fast-track A-level, explaining your situation to the college, managing your time effectively to do the A-level in 1 year. This challenge is not insurmountable!
I've heard that psychology and sociology r rlly hard
Business is fairly easy
Further. Maths is fun
