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.
Firstly, think about which subjects you enjoy at GCSE. If you enjoy them now, then it is likely you will enjoy them at A Level, and vice versa!
Also consider what you want to do beyond your A Levels, whether that be your career choice or further study. You may not be sure at this stage, and many people are not, but you want to try and select A levels that don't close any doors to careers you are interested in. Fortunately there are some excellent resources available to you to help you. The UCAS website is a great place to start, whether you are thinking of university or not. Sign on to the UCAS Hub to help you to organise your own ideas and planning.
Talk to your form teacher, Connexions officer, family about your thoughts. This may help you to refine your ideas and shortlist your subject choices.
Don't worry if, during the process you change your mind, you can always let us know with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
