What to study at A-level?

Excellent advice from The Guardian for students deciding what to study at A-level:


I certainly agree with the following paragraph from this article:

Enthusiasm for a subject is important, because A-levels are stretching. “It’s worth considering which subjects you actually enjoy,” says Carys Roberts, head of admissions at Bangor University. “Then you’re more likely to get to grips with the continuous study and revision which comes with A-level work.”

Another important point regarding the changes taking place in the next few years:

It’s worth remembering that from next academic year, A-levels will no longer be assessed in modules. For someone who doesn’t thrive in an exam setting, this could have serious implications on their final grades. It’s therefore worth thinking about other qualifications that might better suit your personal learning preferences.
