    Weird question, but which of these two qualifications would be better to take?

    I am pursuing a degree in Computer Science when I finish my A-levels, so the IT diploma may be more relevant for this. However, I have a bit more of an interest in psychology and I am studying Computer Science at A-level - so I worry that these will be too similar. Which do you think would be the best choice?

    Thank you for your time, feel free to ask more questions.

    Do you know which universities you want to apply to? Have a look at their requirements using the UCAS Search Tool: http://search.ucas.com/

    Look at the Entry Requirements section for subject requirements, I don't think comp sci courses ask for much though except maybe maths and comp sci? The IT diploma would make your application stronger I guess but if you want to study psychology then go ahead!
