    I'm currently in Year 11 and I have to choose my A-levels. I have already chosen maths, chemistry, biology and government&politics, but i'm wondering if I should change this to psychology...I extremely dislike writing essays(english lit&lang and history are my worst subjects), but I love politics so i'm unsure..however I like the concept of psychology.
    I want to do medicine in university so will any of these complement my other choices?
    Which subject should I pick?

    I do government and politics and there is a lot of essay writing but I also think there is lots of writing but probs less in Psychology.

    I would choose gov pol because its a nice break from science maths and its freaking awesome.

    Psychology is probably better with regards to relevance to medicine (most people I know who applied for medicine seem to have picked psychology - along with biochem of course) and I believe the questions are shorter answers than G&P questions if you want to avoid essays. That said, I think G&P would be a much more interesting and fulfilling subject - at the pre-university level at least.
