I'm thinking about subjects I want to take in college. My options are: Maths, Psychology OR Sociology, Biology OR Health&Social Care.
(you don't have to answer all the questions just answer at least one if you can)
1) I want to take maths but I heard people say that it's very hard. I'm predicted an A in GCSE but I'm still worried that it'll be too hard for me
2) I'm not very good at biology however I want to do something related to social work or medicine (haven't decided yet) so biology will open up more options for me when I go to uni. Should I take it?
3) I don't know whether I should do psychology or sociology. I find human behaviour very interesting but don't know which one is better
4) Is health and social care a good A-level to take? I heard that universities don't like H&SC

Thank you very much.

Maths is very hard. Put in the time and it will still be very hard. Put in more time and you'll make the grade.
Psychology is better suited for a career path like that.
Nothing likes H&SC unless you want to do social care. Pick a better option.

Best to pick A levels based on what you want to do later in life.

However Bio Maths Psych is good combo that will open up most, if not all, doors

Thank you very much.
1) Maths is hard but if you put in the work you should be fine.
2) Look at degrees in the subject you want to do and see if there are any required subjects
3) This is hard, haha Psychology is more science-y, Sociology is more essay based so they are both good for different reasons. I do both subjects.
4) H&SC is a mix of Bio, Psychology and Sociology anyway.

Hope this helps!

H&SC is the most pointless A-level with little value (I took it for AS)
