    What do you guys think of my A-Level choices?

    English Language
    Geography
    Law
    Psychology

    I hope to pursure a career in Psychology when I leave sixth form and apply for university. Whether that be a straight Psychology degree I'm not sure yet.

    I think that if you did something that was closely related to psychology, it would make things easier for you at A level, as well as a degree. Biology would have been a good choice.

    I don't do Science GCSE because I got kicked out of it and put into a Science BTEC class. So I can't do Biology unfortunately.

    Oh fair point. In that case, they are a good set of choices

    Maths would have also been a good one for psychology I think.

    There are 8 classes in year 11 who do Science and six of those are BTEC classes.

    I don't know what the school were thinking.

    Shouldn't you be able to do AS Biology with BTEC Science?

    I did ask this but the school were very picky about it.

    Dunno why.

    Try to find a better option than Law, it is generally seen as a second rate A level (if you just want a straight up opinion rather than a sugar coated less-harsh optimist point of view)

    The school said we will be able to change one subject before we start in September.

    Anything you recommend?

    I won't be able to do any of the Sciences or Mathematics.

    Are you any good at history? As you're doing English it could slot in quite well.

    I can't do History and Geography together because they are in the same tier and clash and I really want to do Geography.

    Also I don't know if doing English Lit and Lang would satisfy me because I don't think I'd enjoy both of them at the same time.
