What GCSEs should I take?
No idea what you want to do after your GCSEs? Don’t worry! Choose a mix of GCSE subjects to give yourself as many different options as possible.
You can also use these links on Career Pilot to help as well:
- If you like one of your GCSE subjects and are looking for ideas of what careers or courses it could lead onto – go to start with a subject.
- Do the Skills Profile and find out what skills you have.
- Got an idea of a job or job sector you think might suit you then check out the job profiles in the job sectors.
If you do know what you want to do… Some careers, such as architecture, vet, working with languages etc. may require specific degree courses. The job profiles in the job sectors has details of all the entry requirements for these jobs.
In this case work backwards - to get into these degree courses you may need specific A levels/Level 3 qualifications, and to do these you may need certain GCSE subjects and grades.
