    hi guys,
    i need help choosing my A levels for college this year. im currently considering choosing:

    psychology OR economics

    im an A grade student apart from english literature which stands at a B grade. i dont know whether to choose psychology OR economics both subjects have their pro's and con's. psycology will go really well with biology and could be a possible career path in the near future however i want to do medicine and i need a subject which will make me stand out and economics seems to be prefered and it goes really well with maths. universtities dont seem to mind however economics is prefered over psycology. i need 3 scienecs to study medicine which i have.

    however this mommnet in time i need to choose the subject that could get me a potential A grade at As. any Advice?

    what subject would you choose? which one is esaier?

    any advice will be highly apreciated

    It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK with over 173,000+ coursework, essays, homeworks etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level, University and IB students across all topics.

    Handpicked examples show formative feedback comments from some brilliant teachers. Plus, reviews from A* students and hints, tips & common mistakes from their teacher team. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying £4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.

    All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site's used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.

    What's more, you can take a look around the site and preview the work, read reviews and teacher summaries AND view the hints and tips absolutely free. Click here to find out more...

    I don't THINK your fourth A Level will matter much, especially since psychology and economics are not that differently rated. Even if you take economics you can still do any psychology degree (you only need two sciences for psychology at the top places).
