I really don't understand where people get the idea that psychology isn't respected. It's a tough subject. OK, it doesn't follow the strictly objective factual approach that the natural sciences do - and that arguably makes it a "soft science", or a social science - but what's this 'not respected' jazz all about? It offers a number of transferable skills and isn't blacklisted, or even less preferred, by any university.
It is less prefered by CAMBRIDGE SORRY TO SAY LOOK: (sorry for caps)

Since when was Geography an art or humanties subject? It's a mixture of social science, and science.
I didn't mean to say geography was an art subject. I meant to say traditional essay based arts subjects and essay heavy social sciences (where geography would fit in). I blame early morning malaise.

Although, yes, parts are less empirical than it used to be. There is a growing trend toward human geography in many A-level syllabus'. It doesn't really fit as a science anymore and only just fits as a social science.

Limited suitability would mean it depends on the course, I'm sure.

Do the combination you think you'll enjoy the most and get the highest grades in.

Yes, that's what I thought. Certainly not an indication of how "respected" the subject is, at any rate.

I.m.h.o

The last one. Govt. and Politics is a fantastic subject and all the subjects seem to compliment each other quite well and aren't too essay-based.

But then go with what you feel is right. Which one will you enjoy the most as they are both equal in academic status.

Really? I can't rememver which Edexcel syllabus I did. I think it was B although I may be wrong. I'd say just under half was physical. Then again this was seven-eight years ago.
