I've got my college interview in about 3 weeks & need to decide what A-Levels to study by that date.
I going to do...
Physics or Chemistry (can't decide, is either a better one to have?)
And I need one more but I'm undecided on what to do.
First I thought of PE as something a bit funner (is that a word?) but to be honest I would rather have better qualifications for the sake of 2 years of work, also I go to the gym 3 times a week & have football 3 times a week as well.
Next was Accounting, something I was looking at as a career, but it's meant to be quite a boring subject & also you only need any A-level to get into it & nothing specefic.
I thought about Law due to banking etc needing you to know about financial law but after speaking to a friend who is a careers advisor I found you dont need it at all, neither is it needed for the police which is another career that I have looked at.
The final two that I have looked at are, Applied ICT & English Language.
The ICT, according to our GCSE teacher is very similar to what I have already got 2 GCSE's in (or will do come results day) & he thinks we could probabably already get a pass based on what we know now.
English Language is one that I would love to do, purely because I think it would look good on a CV to an employer. But, I hated it in school, I think I will get a B grade at GCSE, C at the lowest, but it was probably me least favourite lesson. Also, a low grade on a CV, even if it's a pass, might not look good if I achieved higher grades in the other subjects.
This is probably the order that I am thinking of in terms of which I would rather take, but there isnt much in some of them & I would change if it could help me in life.
So, is there anyone in the know who can give a bit of guidance as to which may stand out to employers & hopefully put me ahead of others when applying for jobs?
