1.Make an early choice
Your A-Level choice is of extreme importance, so do not take it lightly! If you haven’t decided what you would like to study yet, take your time and make informed choices. Research all the subjects you and understand which ones might really interest you. And, especially, avoid rush decisions! Focus on subjects that you firmly believe could lead you to a future career.
2. Do not focus on one choice only!
It is important to be open to all possibilities. Therefore, you should have a few in mind that would be the perfect fit for you. You never know what may happen in life and it is always good to have more than one valuable option. Also, during your university interview, do not show you are overly dedicated to the idea of a specific university rather than the course you have applied to!
3. Do not listen to unsupportive people
In our life, we meet hundreds of people, and not everyone can enhance our personal growth. Some friends or relatives could try to discourage you or have a negative influence on you.
Be sure to be surrounded by ambitious people who will always push you to do better in life. A positive attitude can be a key feature in the most important moments of your life.
4. Be realistic
When choosing between courses be sure to reflect on your academic level. It is always best to aim to achieve the highest standards, but please be realistic about your capabilities! You absolutely do not want to re-sit your exams or be left without a feasible university option. Always take into consideration all factors before making important choices!
5. Get as much as you can from your subjects
Don’t waste your time. You should always try to get the most out of everything you do in life and this clearly includes the subjects you study! You should enjoy studying the topics that you have chosen for your A-Levels and always aim to learn as much as you can. Ask your teachers for detailed or advanced extra material. Read up on topics and choose research themes that will interest university interviewers! Do not choose a subject only because it is easy and will enable you to achieve a higher grade. If you are genuinely passionate about it you will certainly enjoy more your course and perform better too.
We hope that you will follow our advice. Good luck to all students for the coming exams!
