    Hey, I'm starting AS this September and I was wondering whether I should stick with my original plan to study psychology or should I do drama? I'm going to a sixth form college and their drama department seems really good. Also my other three subjects are essay based (English Literature, History and Politics) - so drama would give me some respite from all the essays I would have to write.

    Which subject is more enjoyable and respected by universities?

    If you do either of these subjects your opinion would be very helpful.

    Thanks

    Hi there

    Honestly, just choose the subject you're going to enjoy more, it's more important than you think in general, I think psychology is slightly more respected but your other choices are great so it shouldn't matter too much. Sadly I didn't do either but I had friends who studied psychology who loved it but said it was quite content heavy (which I guess is expected )

    Thanks. I think I might do Drama as I did it for GCSEs and really enjoyed it. Plus I thought it would add some variety to my options!

    Yeah you do - I know both subjects are stressful in different ways but I feel like Drama is more practical so I'll enjoy it more.

    The only thing I'm worried about is that because drama isn't as respected as psychology it might ruin my chances into getting into a respected university as I want to study law.
