    Hey,
    It was really difficult to limit the A Levels that I wanted to take and I've finally decided that I definitely want to take English Literature, Philosophy of Religion, History and Psychology.
    I'm currently in Year 11 and I really hate science but I don't mind Maths and so I'm considering changing Psychology or History to Maths. The advantage of doing so is that my school next year offers Further Maths without it taking up an A Level option choice so I could do it as an extra subject.
    I'm predicted to get As in most of my subjects and I'm interested in studying Law or Politics at uni.
    I think Maths is a better option than Psychology, although I have always wanted to study Psychology so it would be a difficult thing for me to have to drop (I'm also taking two facilitating subjects so there's not a huge need for me to take Maths).

    What are your opinions?
    (I don't mind you recommending any subjects that I haven't mentioned).

    Take the one you'll enjoy most, but after having taken Maths and Psych at AS I can 100% say I enjoyed Psychology far more. I have applied to take various Politics joint honours courses at university and got all of my offers (I'm taking Psych, Sociology and Film Studies after repeating year 12). But it's far better to take subjects you enjoy than taking them beause they are 'facilitating subjects' - I learnt that the hard way.

    Best of luck
