    I don't know what I want to do in uni yet (I've thought of being anything from psychology to religion and theology to law) so I have no idea which A levels I should pick. I know I want to take RS because I love it and I'm good at it, I also like the look of psychology. Other than that, I have no clue. My mum wants me to do RS, English language & literature, Psychology and Law. That seems interesting enough to me but I'm worried I won't like Law and think I might be better off doing History because I already know I'm good at it and I've covered some of the topics I'd be doing before like the Germany time period I'd be studying. However, the rest of the syllabus looks dull and it would probably bore me. Another thing with these subjects is that they're all really hardcore essay and exam based subjects so I'm worried my brain would explode. I've always loved drama and was thinking I should do drama as my 4th option and only pick 3 of the essay based subjects to give my brain a bit of a break i guess. I have no idea what I want to do....

    You shouldn't take something that you don't enjoy because you will hate it. If you like RS and are good at it then take it. Psychology is a good choice and goes well with biology or history. English works with all the combinations but do you want to do both literature and langauge? Some sixth forms offer both as one a level. Don't feel like you have to take 4 a levels if you only can find 3 you really want to do, that's what I'm doing. Sorry if this isn't much help.
