1. Which subjects do you like?
The more you like a subject, the more likely you are to work hard and do well in it. With subjects that you studied at GCSE, it is quite easy to tell whether or notyou like them. If you’re considering a subject which you do not have previous experience of, it is a good idea to do some research beforehand (for example, students’ expectations of what psychology is and what the reality of the Psychology A-Level often do not match up!). Talk to your teachers and to staff at open days and open evenings, and have a look online at the teaching material and syllabus for that subject to see what you will be expected to learn.
