    I am currently in year 11, and I am choosing my A-levels and I chose History , Maths, English Literature and Psychology (Chemistry and Philosophy as reserves).
    I am extremely worried that it is going to be too much pressure and too hard for me. Should I change a subject?

    I do both History and English Lit, both of these subjects are extremely demanding due to workload and I find they take up the majority of my time. I am doing 4, and although I'm managing the balance at the moment, I kinda regret not doing 3. Its up to you, obviously, but just think whether you can cope. History is a very big jump from a GCSE, but English Lit is similar skills but harder texts. If you like reading its a good choice. I hope this helped?

    I don't do psychology but I can say that philosophy is absolutely amazing. So enlightening and the skills in it help all my other subjects. It teaches you about physics, God, mind, ethics and is so enriching.
