    Hi, I'm in the process of picking the subjects I want to take for A level and would love some advice on what to pick. I aspire to study Law at uni in order to (hopefully) become a solicitor. At the moment the subjects I want to take are: Maths, History, Geography and either Physics or Psychology. I have always been good at science but I generally prefer doing humanity based subjects and for that reason I tend to do well in them. The problem is I'm not sure whether to choose physics or psychology as physics is generally thought of as a tough but good choice but psychology, after reading the spec, appears to be an extremely interesting subject despite it having a less well regarded reputation. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    People may disagree but I'd honestly go for the one you think you'd enjoy more and the one you have a chance of doing better in. Your other choices are solid, respectable subjects so your fourth won't matter to much it's so important to choose subjects you enjoy, because trust me, if you don't like a subject very much, you'll struggle to find the motivation to revise!
