This is always tricky, particularly if you do not know what you want to do or what you wish to read at university. This is very common at age 16 when you are expected to select your A level choices.
Schools will generally advise that you choose those subjects that you enjoy the most and are best at. This is sound advice. However you also need to think carefully about which subject selections will give you the best chance when applying to university, particularly if you are capable of taking a range of different A levels.
“If you are capable of taking Maths to either AS, A2 or Pre U – take it. It is probably the most respected subject you can read and proves that you are numerate. Any university course will welcome it. Employers respect it."
Also consider the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). STEM skills are in demand at every level, with employers of every size struggling to find the STEM talent that they need. One in five employers (21%) has difficulty finding graduates with STEM skills, and this rise to to one in three employers (33%) in the science, engineering and IT sectors. This skills shortage will worsen with the evolution towards a more environmentally-friendly economy , where greener skills will be needed.
