Choosing the right A Levels can be a huge dilemma for many students, particularly

for those who are not sure what they want to do at university and beyond.


However, the decisions you make now will set you on a course that can be difficult

to change, so it is important to make the right subject choices at this early stage.


Take time to speak to the Career and Higher Education advisers as well as the

subject consultants. Seek advice from family, friends and your former teachers too.
