    Hey guys,

    I'm having a little trouble choosing which subject to drop at A2. At the moment, I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Psychology and Economics.
    I enjoy both subjects equally, but in Psychology I got a high A, whereas in Econ I had a high B. I also can't choose dependent on my future plans, as they've changed. No longer a medic This year, I am also retaking both modules of OCR AS Chemistry.

    Anyways, if anyone has any advice for me, I'd be eternally grateful.

    Thank you,

    (Original post by Tank Girl)

    Whichever subject you think you can get a higher grade in. Bio and Chem are good enough for uni's to consider you a proper applicant. You won't not get offers from uni's because you decided to take Psyc rather than Econ. So i'd whichever subject you are most likely to achieve your uni offer in. It sounds like psychology from what you said so far.

    If you are more thinking about which subject you're likely to enjoy more - economics becomes more complicated but significantly more interesting at A2 than AS whereas psychology remains fairly similar with a lot of case studies. I preferred Econ but that's personal preference.

    Hope this has helped.
