    Hi, I need some advice on my A level options, I'm in year 11 right now. I want to take English literature, history and psychology, but for my fourth I don't know whether to pick politics or Spanish. I have no clue what I want to study at uni.

    I was originally going to choose Spanish but when it came to submitting my form I panicked and put politics instead because I'm really shy and I got worried about the speaking part of taking a language. But I guess you're expected to 'debate' in politics too so that's not great either. I really don't know. Thoughts?? Not just on the talking aspect but generally too. Thanks!! =)

    Why?
    I never know what I am doing so I will get a low grade. Also class discussion and presentations. Just brought stress to my life

    Hi I do politics and history for a level.

    With politics you don't have to debate in class so dont worry about it, of course you have to like think of arguments for your essays. But there is no compulsory speaking.

    You have a good set of subjects chosen its not set in stone tho my local 6th forms let you change in results day or first 2 weeks Ask your tutor or any teacher if your school allows this they probably do

    I personally would swap Psychology for Spanish but just see how you do in GCSE
