Hi guys, I just finished my GCSE's and I'm planning to take A levels. I'm planning on to pick English Language, History and French/Psychology. I did French in high school and I was working at a B/A.

Basically I just don't know which A level will be more useful for me to take if I want to do a Law degree in the future. I'm concerned that if I pick Psychology it will be too hard as it's a completely new subject and I might not be able to get a good enough grade to get into UNI.

Is psychology A level easy?
Psychology or French?
What A levels did you guys pick if you're current Law degree students?

Thanks xox

Hi, I did French and Psychology at A level (waiting for results now) I didn't do psychology at GCSE and I got an A* in French at GCSE. French is very difficult, there is a lot of grammar to learn and it's a massive step up from GCSE, there is a lot of work! however it is very interesting and I loved it (although I want to do it at degree level haha) Psychology I would say is less work but still a lot of essay writing, I had no problem starting it at A level with no previous knowledge of it. At AS I got a C in both French and psychology bearing in mind I put a lot more work into French, if I had put equal work in I would have done better in psychology so really what I'm saying is, don't be worried about doing psychology with no previous knowledge because it's not too difficult to pick up, and be aware that with French it is a lot of work and it was at times very frustrating with the amount of work. I did English Language too and that was great!

I did neither but French is a more respectable A-Level than Psychology (please don't get offended everyone) and it's a facilitating subject while Psychology is seen as a "soft" subject.

French is facilitating subject and is more ''respected'', i've looked up law courses for some universities and some courses require you to do a year abroad such as france, germany and italy and they ask for a ''small requirement of knowledge in the language'' so french would definitely help you out

I take psychology and I think it's a very interesting subject, it really opens your eyes as to how the human mind works and covers various things from memory, social influence, gender, aggression to psychopathology. However be prepared to have to remember a lot of key words and processes as well as psychologists, studies and beliefs and answer longer exam questions. I do enjoy revising for the subject though as it's something that is of interest to me and it feels less like a chore and more like I'm just broadening my knowledge. I feel like you've got to be passionate for it though.

Good Luck with whatever you choose to do
