    I have just finished my GCSE's in which I am predicted B's in. For my GCSE's I did: Re, maths, English, science, additional science, photography, child development and history.

    For my A-levels I am thinking of doing psychology, media studies. I was wondering what other options should I do with these and should I pick 3 or 4 options?

    Thank you

    Well that depends on what degree you wanna do and what you wanna be when you gradute. Also what subjects interest you and what your good at. You can do 4 A levels in your 1st year then drop 1, so your doing 3 A levels in your 2nd year.

    Maths and Geography.
    Maths as it is an objective subject and thus is easier to revise for and Geography as it is typically an easier A-Level but still respected.
    Note: Geography is changing spec next year so may change in difficulty.

    your description is vague. what do you like? what do you find ''easy''? have you got anything in mind for uni? if yes then its sensible to pick A levels that's going to help you achieve that.
    if you dont know then it's best to keep your options open and maths/Eng lit will keep that open along with your two choices already

    I don't know what I want to study in Uni so I am just picking subjects that I think I will enjoy. Can you pick 4 and drop one in all colleges?

    If you're unsure of what career you'd like it's best to go for well liked subjects by unis. History or English would be good. And yes you are allowed to drop a subject if you start off with four

    Maths is relatively easy if you have an interest in it. You just need to work throughout they year, doesn't really work if you cram for it.

    I find it my 2nd easiest subject (Easier than physics and psychology; harder than geography).
