I take bio chem psych (predicted A*AA and applied for medicine) I had such a hard time choosing between psych and re for my third and I’m so so glad I chose psych in the end! I actually started y13 on bio chem psych and re as I just couldn’t choose and after a half term I dropped re as I diddnt like it as much. Psych is so interesting there is such a wide range of topics so there will defo be something you enjoy. There’s elements of science eg biopsych, bio approach in approaches but it’s not at all science heavy. In comparison to bio and chem the lessons are quite laidback, the content is quite easy to understand. The real challenge with psychology is learning it all. Most of the exam is knowledge based and you just have to learn and recall the content, which means if your willing to put the effort in you will do well. There is elements of exam technique involved but it’s to easy to pick up. There’s up to 16 mark essays which is nothing in comparison to some other a levels but there’s also lots of short questions. There’s a topic research methods (biggest one in psych) where there’s no essays and that’s a little sciency and is all about how to do psych research so u look at ethics in psych research, different types of experiments/observations look at case studies etc. Hope this has helped you get a bit more of an insight into a level psych if you have any questions do let me know as I was in a very similar position to you being stuck with my third a level

Do Geography. So much more useful.
I did some Psychology in my final year at uni and it was pseudoscience. So much theory. Very forgetable.
