    Hi I am currently in year 13 at sixth form doing AS home economics AS religious studies and A2 english language and literature combined and sociology. I will finish RS in January as i did not sit the june exam last year due to illness. i started he this September and I am loving it. Sociology is my favourite and I got an A at AS and have been getting A/A*'s all the way through this term and will be sitting the belief module in January. I have just completed my A2 english coursework which i am really proud of and i reckon i got an A for it but i cant be sure.

    I am not really sure what i want to do with my life so I am going to have a gap year to think about it, I was thinking about doing some more AS levels and volunteering and getting a part time job. I am thinking about AS Psychology and AS Applied Media. Before you say that media is soft I just want to do it out of interest rather than as a career. I quite like the idea of doing a subject with no exams.I am concerned about psychology having too much maths but i have been told it is interesting. Do any of you have experience of these subjects to AS.

    It is not guarenteed i will be able to take them it depends on the college timetable and I will be going to an open day next year.

    I know university's will think it is a bit strange having 6 different subjects at AS level but I am interested in a lot of things and I like the idea of having a quite broad education within my forte eg. I only took Biology as a Science to GCSE and I am not at all interested in them. I got 3A 2B 4C GCSE grades.A's in RE Geography and English Lit B's in English and ICT and C's in Maths Biology French and German
    Sometimes I think it will be really hard what do you think?
    Career ideas i am considering are primary school teaching and social work but i am open to other ideas.
