    Hi there, hope your all well. I need a little help with my a level choices and what to take. I know I am going to take English Lit and History for sure but I need to choose 2 others from Economics, Philosophy, Psychology and Sociology. I don't really know where I specifically want to go into but I was thinking law or teaching.

    I want to take Economics because it sounds interesting, I want to know how the economy works, why people get paid more or less e.c.t. but apparently it contains maths and I don't really like maths lol. do you know how much maths there is?

    Philosophy is also interesting and I like the different opinions e.c.t. I like to express my own opinions and want to add a base to it, get more knowledge.

    Psychology and Sociology both sound really, really interesting. I know I want to take at least one social science. I want to find out about the human mind and how it works. I also want to find out about society, culture, how it affects people.

    Please help me, those who have taken any of these a levels, can you maybe explain it a bit more for me, if you found it enjoyable e.c.t

    Thanks xx

    Out of those subjects I only do economics. There is barely any maths, except for some taking away, dividing or finding percentages. All done on a calculator.

    I would suggest psychology or sociology. I don't do either so I can't tell you much about them, but I found psychology really interesting at GCSE.
