    Yeah, or you could hand it i personally if you can be bothered. I didn't hand it in on the day, because i wasnt 100 percent show about my subjects lol., the deadline for applications is in either January or February( think 5th of feb) so you have time.

    I'm hoping to do 4 if they allow me ., it's because most people will have done 3 with the modular a levels, but now they're mostly linear it will be a lot harder. What do you want to do 3 or 4? I put 4 on the sheet . Are you going to the heckmondwike open?

    I like your new display picture btw- psychology was alright- I now know that I wouldn't want to do it at A-level.

    She basically started with myths of psychology- e.g it's an easy/side subject and it's not a real science- she was sort of defending her subject loads . Then she went through all the different topics(which can be found in the prospectus I believe) and how anything goes with psychology- she said there's a lot of research involved too.

    Psychology is linear, as are most of the subjects, so you will have to do it for the full 2 years. It just didn't appeal to me, it seemed incredibly boring, even if I could get a good grade in it- it would just be me memorising the textbook lol

    Why would you drop it? You would do a year of it for no qualification aha- you should either do it for the 2 years or not at all
