pick a science, its more valuable for employment, psychology is a narrow field and everyone has a degree in it these days so it has became less valuable.

I was wondering if anyone taking psychology at uni could tell me how different to the a-level it is?
I've wanted to study psychology for a long time, but was a bit disappointed after studying it at AS level. I don't know if it's just the school I go to where everything is focused on the exam and 12 markers, but I feel like I'm just learning studies and evaluating them, without learning anything of substance.
I understand that studies are important but it like this at university?
I've been to a taster day and enjoyed the lectures, to the point where I want to do follow up reading of the topics covered, so now I'm really not sure.
I would pick the hard core sciences if I were you, if you have the dedication for them.
i picked up psychology purely for my job I'm in now (I'm 27) and as test really to see how well I do with dedication to something.
I have one more paper to go and can't wait until its over and done with as I have had enough of it.
I'm going to try a pure science next year after a break.

I will be studying (BSc)Psychology at University too, and I wanted to know after having the degree, can I combine psychology in order to choose a career in the film industry (Movie Producer, Screenwriter, Actor)? I know some movie producers and actors got a BA in Pschology, but I am actually aiming for a Bsc.
