Choosing the appropriate subjects for post-16 study can be a daunting yet exciting prospect. It is important that you do quite a lot of research in preparation for this choice and we recommend that you take the following steps:
- Consider what subjects you enjoy doing now at GCSE level.
- Learn about new subjects that are offered post-16. You can do this by attending open evenings; talking to teachers and students who are already taking the course; looking at the specifications for courses on WJEC website.
- Use the Unifrog website to research what kind of careers you could follow with the subjects you enjoy.
- If you know what area you want to go to post-18, use Unifrog to look at examples of universities which offer the course and find out which subjects they want students to follow at A Level e.g. if you want to do Medicine / Architecture / Engineering it is important that you do the right A Levels.
