I'm in a bit of a pickle atm - I'm currently doing philosophy, maths, biology, and psychology at AS level, and have to decide which one I'm going to drop pretty soon. However, I'm not sure which option will be best for uni. I also have the option of dropping none or doing an AQA Baccalaureate. so, here are my options
1.) take all 4 at A-level, will probs get a between 3A's and a B or 4B's, probs somewhere in the middle
2.) drop philosophy (however, I know most uni's like a literate subject
3.) counter intuitively, drop psychology, since it's not required at uni's
4.) take a psychology specialesed baccaleaureate (would do it on polyphasic sleep)
5.) do a philosophy specialised baccaleuareate (either on personal continuity, or on free will)
so, which option seems better?
I could do either 1, 2, or 3, and combine either of 4 or 5 with either of 2 or 3.
so, which would look better at uni level? confused...

To be honest, it probably wont make any difference unless the universities specifically say so. Although, dropping Psych would probably give them a bad impression.

thanks for the quick reply
so you don't think that there would be any difference between an extra A-level and a Baccaleareate then? or between the two types of specialiesed baccalaureate?

i would do psychology a level as it proves you are interested in the course. Although philosophy is a literate subject i shouldn't think unis aren going to be too bothered if you don't continue it all the way through- psychology isn't too dissimilar to a literate subject as in my experience it was lots of essay writing and reading.
you could just continue all 4 if it isn't going to hinder you too much, depends on the grades you need for uni as if they are asking for AAA then i wouldn't risk it, unis only ask for 3 alevels for a reason so dont over work yourself at detriment to your other subjects.
