    I received an email today confirming my acceptance on the UNIQ Law course! I'm super excited haha

    I was speaking to my tutor about my A level choices, and she suggested I drop Psychology as opposed to Latin because Psych isn't facilitating nor respected. I know it's not, but I thought if 2/3 of my a level choices were facilitating(Biology and English Lit), then it wouldn't matter if i had a 'softer' one. But then she pointed out that if I applied to Oxbridge I'd be competing against kids with all facilitating choices and I'd be disadvantaged. How far is this true?

    Which one do you prefer, and can you get a good grade in it? If so, keep that one.
