    Hi, I'm beginning college next year and i'm torn between which A-Level / AS Level courses to take. My ideal choices would be Maths, Law, Health & Social Double and Psychology.
    However, this is a lot more lessons than my peers are taking, so I'm thinking of dropping one, as I don't want too much stress on me anyway.
    I was just wondering if it is worth taking Psychology?
    Could those of you who take the subject give me an insight into what type of things I would be studying and how easy it would be? Thank you.

    If you'd asked me last year I'd say definitely do Psychology, but with the new levels it's ridiculously hard according to my teachers, so much so that it probably takes the enjoyment out of the subject. I.e. loads of in-depth biology, equivalent to a2 biology, and statistics

    It depends on what you want to do in the future!
    I love psychology but they have made the new specification really hard, there is a LOT to remember, last year Id make notes in class and write them all up neatly so that I could revise from them. There is a lot of content, like any subject but it was hard. I got a B in AS, and I worked really hard!
