I'm taking Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, and I'm unsure of whether to take English lit or Psychology. I got quite a good grade last year (A) in lit, but I'm really not sure whether I want to progress it further or choose psychology instead. I had a look at the exam papers for both and they look pretty interesting. It would be really useful if you could say what you thought of those subjects at AS/A Level and what grade you got in the end? Thanks!

Ok so I am an A2 student who has studied psychology at AS and failed and is studying A2 English lang and Lit. From my experience , psychology was/is really interesting but extremely hard as the exam board I did was 100% exams. The content was based on facts/experiments/theories etc which I had to memorise, with my 2 second memory. I also found (and still find) English challenging but quite flexible compared to psychology , you can be more creative and isn't based on facts/ memorising. Based on the other subjects you have picked I think you would be more suited for psychology, but your grade in English says otherwise. Tbh this is a hard one , I would say go for the subject that will help you get into the course you want to do in Uni , assuming you're intending to go, and the subject you'd really enjoy!!
All the best!
