How hard will studying these subjects be in terms of workload and memorisation?

Also I am worried that if I take Law I will have too many soft subjects but I am only considering taking maths because it is one of my stronger subjects, I don't particularly enjoy it.

I would replace maths with a science but I am sick of science after doing triple for GCSE and I am much more interested in Law.

i did psychology at A level and got an A. Out of the A levels I did it was definitely the one with the biggest workload. I often had 2-4 pages of notes from just one lesson and i did practice essays for homework every week. it is the subject that you need to allow a lot of time to revise for. However, it was a very interesting subject and fits well with english (i did english lang/lit combined) as there is a lot of essay writing. the key to doing well in psychology is to revise throughout the year, even if that means just doing practice essays a few times a week and rewriting your class notes. also it helps if you have a clear essay structure, most essays can be answered in the same way so once you have a good structure then they become a lot easier.

Okay, thank you.
