    I'm currently in year 11 and I've been set on my a levels for a while, but recently I've started doubting them. I'm doing Psychology, Media, Photography and Religious Studies, but now I'm considering changing Religious Studies to Law. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do in the future, I either want to go down the media route or some sort of criminal psychology kind of route. So now I'm just trying to decide whether I should switch Religious Studies to Law. Has anyone taken Religious Studies or Law, and if so how did you find it?

    I'm doing both for my A2 right now. They are both honestly overwhelming, philosophy has concepts that take time to understand and For Law there is too many case laws omg! They're both amazing subjects though

    Yeah that's my issue, they both seem really good! Do you have one that you prefer?

    I prefer Philosophy tbh and that's more respected for uni so that's probably the better choice

    I take both RE and Law.
    I was speaking to my teacher about the changes to a level in RE and they seem like its going to be pretty solid (they are adding in a test on religion which we dont cover now). Even atm it is rather challenging (less so unit 1 because they ask the same questions) in unit 2 you have to conduct research on your own and do a 50 mark essay with no choice of question and so it is rather challenging and more like university work.
    I would recommend law because the content is pretty simple to understand its mainly just the amount of time you put in. You get used to learning cases and you just learn the limited number of essays that they can ask you really.
    Hope this helped.
