    Hey,
    So I've just completed my AS levels amd got my results
    Health and Social Care - AA
    Psychology - D
    Sociology - B
    I plan on studying nursing at University, and am not certain on which subject I should drop out of psychology and sociology. Obviously sociology is my stronger subject, however I enjoy psychology more. In addition, I'm not sure which subject would be best to continue with for getting onto a nursing degree. Any advice anyone could offer would be much appreciated
    Thank you

    I would do something you are enjoying more, I checked and both subjects are important in nursing so it is pretty much up to you. But in the end universities want good grades and since both subjects are relative it won't matter much which you drop. However I think two A levels are really not enough since majority of Universities ask for three A levels. In my opinion I would stick to psychology but it matters what you want to do

    Heres the subjects most unis require:

    No Problem

    Well then that's fine if they count as two A levels, then theirs pretty much nothing to worry about. If you enjoy something then chances are you will end up being good at it. However either way if you drop sociology or psychology you will be fine

    Yeah I agree with the poster above, as the AS to a2 jump is quite significant, both psych and socio will get harder so your enjoyment in the subjects would definitely depend on your grade outcome because I'm sure you will put more effort into what you enjoy. Have you thought about retaking your worst psych unit in order to boost that D up to a C/B alongside your a2? Also, look at the syllabus of both subjects to see what you'll prefer
