    -English Lit

    Plus what you want to become. Thanks to anyone who replies because I really need some help and advice/feedback from people who actually take those subjects would mean a lot to me bc I'm the oldest smfh

    History - brilliant
    English - Really hard but if you are willing to work it shouldnt be that bad
    Psychology - dunno sorry
    Sociology - from what i hear its supposed to be quite easy (as far as A-levels go)
    Politics - Brilliant
    Chemistry - from what i hear its supposed to be hard
    Biology - lots of stuff to learn but its relatively easy.

    Eh, i probably will want to pursue a career in law, classics, economics, politics or PPE

    Not doing any of those lool

    Out of these I've done/am doing (I'm A2 about to start my exams) English lit, biology and chemistry.

    Biology is a LOT of work to learn concepts and stuff, but I'd say most of it isn't too difficult, and as long as you understand how the exams work you should be ok. Chemistry is work understanding concepts, but once you understand and know them it's ok. It's definitely my hardest subject though! Although, I'm the only person in my class who doesn't also take A level maths, and I feel like I'm behind everyone on that! If you work hard enough you'll get it though.

    Personally I've loved English and for me it's the subject with the smallest workload. However, it is a jump from GCSE because you can't just write down stuff your teacher said and you definitely have to learn to think for yourself.

    Ultimately I think you can do anything if you put your mind to it! If you don't enjoy a subject, or have no motivation to suceed at it (need it for a specific career etc), then you won't get anywhere.

    Edit: Sorry didn't see the "what you want to become" thing! I want to be a physiotherapist
