    Hello, This is my first post

    I was faced with a dilemma when Government & Politics was dropped from my chosen sixth form centre therefore I do not know which fourth subject to choose from.

    I have done a bit of research into the subjects that I would require for University and I've been left with three that I am veering towards.

    English Literature, Psychology or Economics?

    I have out ruled English Lit for now as I am already taking English Language but I am curious if you could all give me more information on Psychology or Economics and help me make up my mind!


    It's brilliant, and I love it. Whilst some parts can be extremely boring, for the most part it's a really interesting subject.
    Do you know what exam board your school uses for psychology? Ours uses AQA, but say if your school is using WJEC the course is completely different and I think AQA spec 'A' is the best one. :p:

    you should take eng lit ..in replacement to english lang....and you should take economics if you're interested about our economy and if you enjoyed business studies, then this is your subject i guess

    Depends. Economics is seen as a more rigorous Alevel course, and will be more 'respected' come university applications. :p:

    Economics is a very well respected subject, psychology less so, though its a respectable subject in its own right.

    I'd say economics personally, its so interesting.
