    Hi!
    I've decided to do media btec and religious studies. However, I wanted to do sociology but it's in the same column as media

    I'd love to do history or English but I think they'd be too difficult (I was in set 2 for English and think I've got a b at best - history is probably a c and sounds quite boring but there's a Berlin trip.)

    I've always had an Intrest in law but I've heard it's not well respected and in my school it's basically self taught.

    I'm pretty sure I've failed maths GCSE and I've never been very good at science, but psychology is said to be similar to Sociology - but I've heard everyone in AS in my school are on c or below...
    I'm not sure what to do! There's also health and social but it's not well respected.
    Ps I'm hoping to become a journalist

    If you're doing it for the Berlin trip, don't do History. I do it and love it, but it is very hard work. On the other hand, if you are inspired by the new content on the AS course, do History.
    I know a lot of people doing Psychology who really like it, including a few who think it is easily their best subject. However, it depends a lot on you.

    I cannot comment on Law, as my school doesn't run it, but I have heard that it's viewed as "soft".

    English is challenging, though not as hard as History (for me). If you want to do Journalism, this seems like the most solid option. It is a facilitating subject and well-respected - and I enjoy it. Lessons are largely discussion based, so it can be quite refreshing.

    HOWEVER, do the subject that appeals to you the most. After all, you will have to invest a lot of time and effort.

    I think if you're hoping to become a journalist, either English Literature or English Language would be best

    English Language isn't too bad, it's just leaning newer terms and applying them to more high level concepts, very similar to GCSE
