    So i got my AS results today and i got:

    Psychology - A
    Sociology - A
    Religious Studies - A
    English Literature - B

    I'm completely over the moon with them but..
    I was positive that i was going to completely fail my english so i was set on dropping that but now i'm unsure of what to do. I know my english is my lowest grade overall so you'd think i'd drop that but Psychology has become less interesting to me this year so i was also considering dropping that despite me getting 2 really good A's in it..
    Is it worth carrying on with english despite having a lower grade but it being a more ''respected'' and traditional subject (i want to become a primary school teacher when i'm older) or do i carry on with psychology so i have a really good chance of getting an A* overall if i put my mind to it?
    My University said it doesn't require a traditional subject in order for me to do a course in primary teaching but which of the two is a better A Level to have?

    Need to make my choice today and ring my college to let them know but i'm so stuck between the two of them, has anyone got any advice or opinions for me? Thanks guys

    I was in a similar situation last year - bbbd, with the D being English (which I'm now going off to do at uni). I had a B in psychology but ultimately I hated it so much that I never went back after the exam. Honestly just follow your heart, don't put yourself through a year of something you dislike.

    In my opinion, English is a great subject to have, but as I'm not in your exact position I can't properly understand your options. I think it's better to drop the one you dislike over the one you got a slightly lower grade in, but again, just my opinion.
