Cambridge has asked for 2 pieces of written schoolwork to be sent in the next 7 days. I'm applying for HSPS which is a combination of sociology, social anthropology and politics & ir. I have a geography essay that has scored 15/15 and is on a topic that I'm very passionate about. I also have a psychology essay that scored 21/22 but it's very evaluative (of a psychological theory) rather than one that shows opinion. I have an English Lit essay that has scored full marks and is on a book about the holocaust but I'm afraid to send that in incase the essay is not as good as my teacher thinks it to be (especially since this is English, which is a generally subjective subject) - this might show them that my school marking is not very strict and make them question my predicts?

So far, I'm pretty sure I'll send in the geography one. Any advice on which I should send between psychology and english?

I think you're right about the subjectivity of the English paper - I would go with psychology
