    I am currently doing a levels in sociology, accounting and history and I absolutely hate history. I don't find it interesting at all and even when I read over my notes I still forget everything.
    I moved college and restart my a levels this year but last year I took psychology and enjoyed it, I was thinking that maybe I should switch history to psychology (if my college lets me). The only problem is that I did a different exam board in psychology (AQA) while my college does Edexcel. Do you think that switching will be a bad idea and is it too late? Help, I'm hating History with a passion!

    I think overall you will enjoy Psychology much more than History despite the exam board. I think you should definitely switch if you can.

    I'm taking history too and I was going to drop it at AS because I lost interest in it & I was getting stressed because I couldn't remember most of it. However, my sixth form leader strongly advised me not to drop (basically said I couldn't). After a few weeks, I'm actually quite enjoying history again and although I still can't remember any of it, I have a little more motivation to work hard at it.

    Stick with history if you think you may be able to like it again, but considering you enjoyed psychology I'd definitely say switch if you can. It's not too late if you're prepared to work hard at it and catch up!
