    In your option which pathway would you choose, education/ career wise.
    I like Psychology a lot and I am really considering a Bsc in forensic psychology and go from there. Then when I think about it, forensic science has so many pathways, depends how far I get...Msc...PhD...etc.
    any respectable mature responses is much appreciated.
    by the way I'm currently on a Applied science Extended diploma, Pred- D*DD

    What are you asking? Which A level is better (are they even A levels?), or which degree is better? Forensic Science has nothing to do with psychology, don't do that if you want to be a psychologist.

    I don't mention anything about a levels, I'm asking what would be a better career , forensic science or forensic psychology?

    Both are extremely competitive and difficult careers that require more than a BSc degree. Which is "better" depends on what you want to do, where you want to do it, your back up plans, how much you want to be paid, how long you're willing to study etc etc. Noone can tell you the answer to this it's like asking which is the better pizza.

    You've posted this thread in the A levels forum which is why you've not had much response.

    Neither psychology nor forensic science are good degrees. You have more chances of getting into a job linked to forensics by doing a degree in one of traditional sciences at a reputable university. Forensics and stuff degrees are usually offered at crap unis, graduating from which you would be lucky to find a job in your local KFC.
