I'll try and keep this as brief as possible
So basically, I go to a high achieving grammar school, and I'm mostly achieving A*, A's and a few B's at GCSE, which I'm happy with (no where near as good as the majority of students at my school, who get 10+ A*s but meh
) and for A-level I was set on taking; Maths, German, Sociology and Economics
But I looked at other sixth forms centres in my area and applied to one, for Maths, German, Sociology, but Psychology instead of Economics.
My current school doesn't offer Psychology which is something that I really want to study as I'm considering it as a degree (possibly combined honours with Sociology?) which is one of the reasons why I considered moving for sixth form.
So my dilema is, do I move sixth form or not? My current school is very good, I have lovely friends and the teachers know me, and I feel that it would be the 'sensible' option.
But the other sixth form has a lovely, slightly more relaxed vibe which I feel I may be able to excel in and it has very good ofsted and results (not as good as my current grammar school but still good
That's why people think I'm crazy for considering moving, but part of me feels like its the right thing to do
) I know a few people there already, and feel ok with meeting new people and making new friends so that's not a problem.
TLDR; So to cut a long story short, I was wondering if anyone has any personal experiences of moving sixth forms, from grammar school to comprehensive, or have any advice about my situation.
Also, would the above combinations of A-levels be acceptable for a Psychology degree?
Can anyone give me some info, from a student's perspective, about A-level Psychology (or any of the subjects that I've mentioned?)
If I stayed at my current school, would I be at a disadvantage if I applied for Psychology at uni, if Maths is my only 'science-ey' subject?
Thank you so much for any comments/advice and thank you for reading (sorry it was so long
