I'm planning to do psychology at university, so what would be a better A Level to choose. Is English better or is EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) better, if I had to choose one? What do you'll think the universities would prefer?

Hey, I'm a year thirteen who is currently applying to study psychology at university, and I'm doing both A level English Literature and a psychology centred EPQ. The EPQ counts as half an A level, so it is worth more than the "new" AS levels which are only worth 40% of the full A level. Most universities usually require three A levels at certain grades/points in order to gain entry, so an EPQ wouldn't count as it is not a full A level, but some universities might reduce your offer for example from AAA to AAB with an A in the EPQ.

Hey, I'm a Year 13 student as well, and I am doing A2 maths and psychology and AS English right now. So I'm not sure whether to drop English and choose EPQ instead. And by what your saying, is English a better option to choose rather than EPQ?

Ahh okay! I'd say your safest bet is to probably stick with English. However, if you really hate it then check with the universities you'd like to apply to and see what they make of it. The EPQ is pretty independent though, so I guess it really depends on what you feel you're strongest at

Hey, thanks a lot for your advice. I was really confused first but now I think like you said I'll stick with English, to be safe. Thanks again. :-)
