well i cant come to the rhul open day on the 13th of june, and i need to ask a few questions before next year starts, such as what subject would be more advisable to drop etc...
im looking into doing psychology (or maybe one of the amazing new options they have!)
do you think they will accept an email asking if i can come in to talk to one of the psychology teachers? and if so... what shall i write :/ (im not very good with communication heh)
i cant come to the june one because of a careers day at school, which involves having a very big booklet that talks about personal statements, and also doing a first draft of a personal statement.
thanks for the help
edit: i know there was an open day last saturday... i did go but due to personal issues i had to quickly scoot off, which meant not being able to ask the important questions

As a Science Faculty Rep., I've been lucky enough to actually look at the exact numbers of psychology applicants and offers given for the upcoming academic year. Psychology
is very competitive, but though I can't remember the numbers off the top of my head, approximately 75% of applicants received offers. However, I completely understand your concerns. I guess my main point is: get those grades! Even if you do the more 'prestigious' subject of English and end up with a prediction of (or actual grades of) ABB, they won't let you in. But, once again, hopefully the department will reply in an email to help you out more with this decision.

ah, thanks. i just heard that it is really competitive, so they might not regard me as well as others... at AS im doing psycho, media, music and english.
thanks for the advice. and sorry for the short answer after the amazing long post, i have read it though i promise :P
Haha, of course, no worries! I do tend to go on a bit, so I'd understand if it was a struggle trudging through the spiel to get to the useful bits.
