    I've chosen Maths, Economics, Geography and French for my A levels and will drop French after AS since i've heard that languages get harder at A2. I'm also thinking about switching French for psychology. Does anyone know what these subjects are like, and if they're a good mix if you don't know what to do at uni? I'm currently at an A* for all of them and am in Year 11. Thank youu

    I'm doing Maths and French so... not much I can say about Maths it's pretty much what you'd expect. The topics are a lot harder than at GCSE but once you understand them the exams are fine, and it's pretty easy to get a good grade in my opinion. I like it ☺️

    French has been great too. I wouldn't say it gets too much harder at A2, because by that point you've already done most of the grammar etc you need to. I was planning to drop it at AS, but I enjoyed it so much I decided to carry on.

    They look like a really great mix x

    The best subjects to choose are the ones you genuinely enjoy. I heard psychology is one of the easiest a levels but not the most respected but if you can get an easy A out of it its worth it. 4 A levels is very difficult even for intelligent people. Do what you enjoy and you won't regret it!

    Thank you so much I heard that too but I'm confused as to whether I should do French as an AS and risk not getting an A or do Psychology, which isnt as respected but might be an easy A. I'm planning on dropping one of my subjects for A2 but have to do 4 at AS. Thank youuu
