Choosing Your A Levels

Choosing your A Levels

Narrowing your curriculum down to 3 A Levels isn't always a straightforward thing to do, but there are some important factors to consider.

  1. Consider subjects you enjoy and have progressed well in at GCSE, and think you will achieve a high grade in.
  2. Consider what career you want to do beyond your A Levels and check any requirements for further study. The UCAS website is a great place to start, whether you are thinking of university or not.
  3. Consider subjects that you have not studied before but suit your interests and skills. 

Talk to your form teacher, Connexions officer, family about your thoughts. This may help you to refine your ideas and shortlist your subject choices. The Sixth Form Open Evening and Year 11 Taster Day will help you to make informed choices.

Don't worry if, during the process you change your mind, you can always let us know with an email to It is also possible to change your A Levels after you have started if you find they really aren't in line with your thinking at the beginning of Year 12.
