    I plan to study politics/international relations at university. For my a level choices I've chosen maths history politics. For my 4th subject (probably for as only) I'm considering psychology/sociology/law. Any thoughts on which of the 3 would be the best??

    I applied for IR this year.

    Any of these will do.

    Psychology is the easiest out of these, though, while sociology is very convoluted and confusing in my opinion.

    I do not know about law, sorry. I heard it has a lot of content and that is all I know.

    I recommend either psychology or law.

    I'm currently studying Psychology and Sociology for a-level now so I can't really give any insight into law..

    Psychology - my favourite subject, probably the more interesting of the two and combines skills of maths (through statistics), English (through essay writing) and biology/chemistry (through study of the brain) its also a great way to develop analytical skills and provides an insight/ gives explanations into a lot of human behaviour.

    Sociology - for me I find the content a lot easier to understand, but slightly less interesting. It gives you a broad view of how society works and the different systems within society (media, education, religion, family etc..) and their influence, which would probably be more suitable for politics

    Tks for the thoughts guys. I heard some people say law is too soft as an a level subject. And it's also on lse's non preferred list of subjects. So is it really worth if I seem to like it the most out of the 3
