    Unfortunately I've just found out that there is a clash between two of the subjects that I wanted to study at sixth form.

    I have chosen Biology over French, but now I have the difficult decision of choosing a 4th subject to take, as my sixth form won't let me take 3.

    Im taking Biology, History and Psychology, and absolutely love these subjects. I've looked for a long time and there is nothing else that I would enjoy so I've just accepted that I'm going to have to pick a subject i dont enjoy

    Therefore, in order to actually get decent grades and be able to focus on the ones that are important to me, I was wondering if there is a subject that is 'easier', or requires less work, (possibly not an essay based subject then), even though I know that this is subjective.

    If not easy, is there a subject that would be complimentary to the ones I've chosen?

    I dont yet know what I want to do as a career, so at the moment am just doing what I enjoy and trying to keep my options open!
