    First thank you for clicking on this thread!

    I am between GCSE exams at the moment and have several college offers. My only concern is whether or not to take Psychology for A-level. I already do it for GCSE and find it very interesting, though have seen many of Youtube videos who say that AS/AL is extremely boring and hard. So I thought I would put it to you and ask your thoughts

    Some aspects of it are boring. It isn't hard at all! The only thing that is hard is committing everything to memory as there are so many studies to remember etc. I do aqa and they are completely changing the specification. So I wouldn't know whether it may be harder or not. Depends which exam board you will be with. I didn't do it as a gcse, but if you like psychology and find it enjoyable i strongly suggest you take it! But it is up to you, what other subjects are you considering as well?
