So i'm going into my second year of college and in my first year i did Psychology, Biology, History and Chemistry. i got 2 B's one in psychology the other in history but i didn't do so well in chemistry and bio, So i decided to do the Level 3 applied science diploma and the rest of my A levels in psychology and history. i want to get into a top uni and do forensic psychology or something in that field. i hear that the L3 btec is equal to 3 A levels. so i would be getting virtually 5, however most unis don't looks at each one of your grades i've been told. only the top 3. so i'm wondering if it would just be worth dropping one of my A levels.

Are you doing an Extended Diploma or just the Diploma?

I would drop history then as there's not really much point in doing it, focus on getting top grades in your Extended Diploma and Psychology

You could also drop Psychology if you wanted but as that's what you want to do at uni then I'd stick with it for another year

Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?
