    I'm hoping to become an experimental or organisational Psychologist.

    I'm thinking of picking Psychology, English Literature, Government and Politics and also Sociology. At the moment the only subjects i'm not sure about is Sociology. Apparently it is seen as quite 'soft' and to be honest wouldn't really do me much good later on.

    I'm thinking of switching it to Computing A Level. However I have no real experience in COmputing as i'd never really picked it at GCSE but it seems like it would be very useful and stick out more than Sociology. Is it easy enough to pick up without doing a GCSE on it?

    (As you've probably noticed, written subjects are my passion. I'm really bad at anything like Maths. I was considering Biology but i'm scared that I wouldn't do too well at it as I got a B in additional science GCSE.)
    Thanks for your help/advice

    Out of the subjects you've mentioned I think Biology would be the most useful one for Psychology... If you like essay subjects, maybe consider History? It seems to be a respected subject.
