So I'm just a couple of months away from choosing my A-Levels and I'm a bit unsure on what too take. I definitely want to take Business and Psychology but I'm not sure about the third one. I would prefer the third one to be an 'easier' option. Maybe Graphics because I enjoy it at GCSE, or perhaps Sociology as it's a bit like Citizenship and I enjoyed that at GCSE (gaining an A from the exam). Should I take Business, Psychology and Sociology? Or is that too many social sciences?! Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated!

It depends what you want to do in the future, but i wouldn't take a subject just because it's easy.

What about taking a facilitating subject? You currently don't have one and it could strengthen your prospects for the future. I don't think you should pick subjects depending on how easy they are, but by your interest in it or if it's something that will open doors in areas you're interested in. If you want to do psychology, perhaps chemistry would be a good science alongside it.

Business is already an easy subject that is not very respected by uni's.

What would be an area that would interest you? That would help with reasonable suggestions.

I don't think it's necessary an easy subject tbh as it does have value but I'll leave that to open discussion

Is there anything outside of those 2 that you enjoyed at GCSE or is that pretty much it? Are there any subjects available that you didn't do at GCSE and don't know much about?

I'm really struggling with areas that interest me. I like psychology because I like learning about why people think like they do. If I could I would study something like psychology at university, but I'm not sure what career that would lead me into.

What subjects are you good at and what other subjects do you enjoy? Maybe doing a mixture of subjects may help, IDK.

I would take a science, but I know how big the jump from GCSE to A-Level is, and I do enjoy science but I'm not sure if I will enjoy it at A-Level as they seemed quite hard when I tasted the subject at an open day for college.

At GCSE I enjoy Business, Science (specifically Biology) and perhaps Geography? But I'm not sure about taking a Science at A-Level as it seems very hard.

Business and Geography could be considered facilitated subject but it really depends what you want to do. Maybe speak to a career's adviser at school or something.

I don't know what's wrong with business or why some uni's don't see it as something. But have you considered something to do with humanities such as English Language or History? I think they are quite strong and helpful. I would take both of them if I were you, if you could handle it, that is.

Business, Psychology, History and English Language/Literature to me look really good.

I don't know if it's possible for you, but if you could top that with sociology that would be very hard but very enriching imo.
I'm sure Pyschology has a fair bit of writing to it, and so does history so adding and english might be a bit too much. So maybe

Business, Psychology, History and Sociology. Idk. It's up to you. Research some university courses too and see what would work really well. A lot of people say they "regret" what A-level subjects they took so think carefully.

Why is it not respected?
