I'm almost at the end of selecting my subjects and would really appreciate ur help in selecting my 4th AS level subject for bio/chem or medicine.

I was initially confused between physics, business studies, psychology, eng lit and spanish but then realized that eng lit, physics would be hard and not so interesting for me and business studies is considered a very "soft subject"

so i ultimately had to narrow my options to spanish and psychology. I think i would undoubtedly enjoy psychology more as i have a general interest for it but some say it is considered a "soft subject" too. What's your opinion being an A level student? did u enjoy them? what's ur advise?

Thanks a lot for all the help x

Psychology has some science elements to it (I mean Biology elements)
It's a pretty good subject so if you enjoy it pick it.

Also it isn't really a "soft subject" as there is quite a lot of content but it's a good a level to take if you want to.

Don't worry too much about having one "soft" subject that I assume you'll drop at A2 anyway.
It's only the top universities that care and even then it's only an issue if you have 2+ "soft" subjects.

Just pick the one you'll enjoy studying and will be able to get a solid grade in to put on your UCAS application.
