Hi.
I hope I posted in the right place as I'm new. Anyway, I've picked four A-levels but I'm going through a phase of doubt...
For the sixth form I'm going to I picked Biology, Psychology, Philosophy and the new A-level, Creative Writing.
I want to get into a career to do with Criminology or just Psychology in general. If not those two then something in Biology.
I'm mostly unsure about doing Creative Writing. It's just for fun and I didn't want to do Chem or Maths. Should I do Sociology instead? Any advice? Thanks!

I think sociology would be a better option than creative writing. If you wanted to do do writing then it would be better to choose English.

If you do decide to choose creative writing, then I would strongly recommend that you drop it after AS.

Have you considered doing English Language / Literature instead? They're very respected A Levels, and bear similarities to Creative Writing.

Yeah but I don't really like English language and English lit is a little boring. I'm considering Sociology though.

I don't really enjoy Chemistry as much as Biology so there's no point in doing something I don't have much passion for. As for maths, I heard it gets a lot harder and I'm really not up for that.

I was planning on dropping it anyway as I know it won't get me anywhere... but it seems fun. The thing is that with Creative Writing I have no idea what it's going to be like. It could be completely different to how I'm imagining it.

Thanks for replying though guys.

Have you had a look at the syllabus for creative writing in detail, and independently of your teachers?

If you find English literature and language boring, then I fear that you'll end up feeling the same about creative writing.
