Difficult choice- Need YOUR help Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I currently do 4 A-levels- History, Maths, Psychology and Philosophy and Ethics and I am hoping to pursue a career in Law. I initially planned to drop Psychology at A2, but I am currently have doubts at whether I will get an A in maths. My maths teachers are the epitome of **** and I'm currently just trying my best to self-teach at home. If I were to drop Maths at A2, I will be left with quite weak A-levels but I am certain I will achieve an A in these A-levels. Should I drop Maths instead of Psychology at A2 or not?

    Honestly, you should really drop the maths, psychology is more valued when pursuing law and A levels are too hard to self teach.

    Just drop maths.

    Your other 3 A-levels aren't 'weak'. They're really good for law.

    Best thing to do is drop the one you think you'll do less well in.
