Which applied modules should I do?Watch
I'm planning to self-teach Maths and Further Maths A-levels and so I will have completely free choice over which applied modules I want to do but I'm not sure which would be most helpful. I want to eventually do something psychology-based at university. Am I right in thinking that statistics modules will be most useful for that? Is it worth doing all of S1-4 or would it be better to do some mechanics/decision as well?
Most psychology courses do not even require maths
I'm in Year 11 doing AS Maths at the moment (I did the GCSE a year early) so will do 3 modules this summer, then I'm planning to hopefully do the rest of it across the next two years...
Some universities may not like the 3 year model
Basically my school only offers Further Maths if you only take two other A levels and there are too many other subjects I want to do so I thought maths would probably be easier to self-teach than something like Spanish. I might just do the normal maths A level in school instead, I just wanted to look into the options for self-teaching as well.
I think what my school usually does to get around this is they don't "cash in" the modules until the end of Year 13 so that it appears that the A levels were taken over 3 years
But I am sure your school has thought things through
What other subjects are you planning to take? Are you aware that most A levels are becoming linear ....
