    I want to study psychology at university but I am not sure which a levels to take. I have decided on biology, psychology and economics but I am not sure what to take for my fourth. I think it is either between Spanish or geography.

    At GCSE, I got A's in both but I struggle with Spanish listening as I got a D (1 mark off a C) in it so I'm worried that I won't be able to do the listening as I find GCSE standard difficult. However, I got A*'s in my speaking and writing. In geography, I got an A* in human geography and a B (1 mark off an A) in physical geography.

    I think I would enjoy Spanish more but I am just worried that I won't do very well in it.

    I'd appreciate it if someone could help me choose!! Thank you.

    At the end of the day its your choice. Do what you feel is best for you. I was stuck in the same position and didn't know what to take as a 4th subject. I wanted to do Maths Biology and chemistry but couldn't think of another one. I was stuck between picking further maths (because I am good at maths and enjoy it) or politics (because its a fun and laid back subject with a nice teacher) My brother was telling me to pick politics because he did and I did, but I didn't really fit in as I don't like essay writing so I changed to further maths because it was more enjoyable and I worked harder in that subject and ended up getting an A in that. IMO I would go with what you enjoy (spanish) but only if you're willing to work hard and address your problems with the listening part of it.

    Good luck! And remember you can change it within the first few weeks if you're not enjoying it.
