I'm considering taking both psychology and government + politics as A-levels and I just wanted to know:
1) Are they respected A Levels? Regarding GCSE's, my school only offered psychology to less able students and as a more able student, I was only given the option of 'academic' subjects (g+p wasn't available) which gives me the impression that it isn't a very good nor challenging course to take? My head teacher also told me that G+P won't help me in my future and is a useless A-Level to have (although I think the only reason she said that was bc my sixth form doesn't offer it which is fine bc I'm not staying here anyway)
2) How hard are they and is it somewhat easy to get at least an A in exams?
3) I'm considering them bc they both interest me + I want to try them out to see which one I'm better at/enjoy the most so that when I finish sixth form, I know which career route I wish to go down. However, law is also a career route I'm considering so would it be better to take core subjects I know I'm already good at (English, RS etc.) instead of taking the risk with subjects that I may not even pursue as careers?

Thats a seriously messed up school, where they limit GCSEs to 'less able students', what impact do they think a student taking psychology at GCSE will really have on their future?
