    Have you considered Chemistry also as that would be very complimentary or maths?

    But out of the three you suggested sociology would probably be the most applicable to your future career choice

    Do you have an option to study Health and Social? Any sort of nursing/midwifery degree would be good with that and I've heard it's not a particularly difficult a-level. Either that or another science?

    You'll find physics quite hard without maths, law is a good a level but isn't on the same level as the three you've chosen. Sociology is complementary of psychology. I don't know much about philosophy, and that's because I know no one who has taken it.

    As reply to the above. Chemistry is really hard, so unless your passionate about it, I wouldn't take it.

    NOTE: No A Level is easy.

    I have an A in maths as I was doing additional but hated it and dropped it in january I was going to do chemistry as I was considering medicine but I don't want to do medicine anymore and find it boring. Yh we do have an option for health and social care. ..I think but ive taken it this year hoping for an A* it was easy at gcse but I want to try something new and law and sociology I was defo interestee from start till I foubd outti need sciences....my friend saw how depressed I was after that connexions meeting...anyway I have only considered philosophy recently and the topics sound intriguing as its the sort of thing I wonder about more or less but I just saw a past paper of it and it looks terrifying. I did history and the highest mark was 16 I think philosophy was 30. Oh wait english was 24 marks lol
    Thanks for the advice may consider sociology if its bot available or fits with table I'll do philosophy

    A fair chunk of AS Chemistry is similar to GCSE though with a few add ons like mechanisms.

    Hey!

    My sister is about to begin studying Nursing at Surrey University in September. She got into Southampton but Surrey was better situated for her. My other sister is about to begin a further degree in teaching at Southampton and she loved it, I hope you get in - it seems a very good university!

    My sister did Health and Social studies and said it was brilliant and perfect for a career in nursing so If I were you I would do Sociology as I think it relates most to being a nurse...

    Hope I've helped

    I agree. Health and social care might be a good option if you are able to do it at your college.
    Otherwise it might be worth doing sociology. I did it at a-level and loved it.
