    I want to keep my options open thats why it seems like a pretty odd bunch of A Levels.

    Just a few questions -
    -Do Psychology and R.E have essay based exams?

    -I'm picking Bio, History and Psychology - I'm worried that I might have a breakdown or something with the amount of memorising required?

    -Is it realistic to expect AAAA grades from taking these subjects together?

    I haven't picked History, R.E OR Psychology at A Level but I'm getting A* in Biology and B's in English if that helps.

    like you say it's a very strange combination, but that doesn't particularly matter!
    what do you aim to do in the future?
    as for the work involved, history isn't that heavy so i wouldn't worry about that, and if you feel that you can make the grades then why not?

    3 out of 4 are essay based subjects, but if that's what you're good at then it's fine

    well it also depends on what u want to do after a levels..biology will require some hard work but hey, anything requires hard work so i think its good..but definitely should think of what u want to do after als

    good luck!
