What should I take with these A levels?

I have taken Biology, English Literature and Economics at A levels. What courses can I apply for with this combination?
Answered by Cicely Oliver
Hi David, the question you should be asking is 'what do I want to study?'

You'll be spending three-four years studying at university. It's important you choose something you are actively interested in and want to spend time on.

Then, research courses in your area of interest.

Course search here: www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/courses/search

Look at the entrance requirements. Will you meet them? Many courses/universities will have basic, general entrance requirements, with some specialisation required for, say, maths and sciences.

Make a short-list and go from there.

I hope this helps!

Best of luck.
