There are some subjects known as 'facilitating subjects' which are regarded as the most difficult A levels and that are more traditional. These are:(Original post by ryanross)
I've just started a levels and am taking german, geography, english lit and psychology (planning on dropping psychology in yr 13) and my gcse grades were 6 As, 4A* and a C. I wanna do law at a russel group uni but i'm worried that if i change my mind i wont have many career options as there are more career options for higher paid jobs if you do maths or science. Also I feel kind of dumb when everyone else is taking maths and science lol. Will they look down on me for dong psychology for AS and are language a levels considered easy?
- Maths and Further Maths
- English Literature
- Languages (classical and modern)
As three of your four subjects are facilitating, no one will look down on you - more likely people will admire you for taking strong subjects. Your subjects have plenty of breadth for you to change your mind over which subject to study at degree. Don't do a subject with the intention to drop it after a year - you may change your mind so it may be better to have the idea of doing all four to A level then decide after AS whether or not you want to drop one (just make sure you do the AS exam in the one you would drop!)
Also, don't feel dumb over choosing more essay based subjects than STEM subjects. I have completed my first year of A levels and I can say (confidently) that history was the most difficult of my four subjects (I took Maths, Further Maths, Physics and History). Chose subjects you enjoy, not the ones that will get you the highest paid career as this could easily change in the next few years.
Are my a levels too soft??
