    I’m studying psychology, biology and English language. In future I want to become a psychologist (most likely clinical).

    Right now I don’t like English and I’m thinking of dropping the course. What could I do?
    I don’t want to do law and sociology.

    I was thinking maybe IT or media...a friend suggested photography.

    Anybody have any suggestions on what course to do??

    IT could be quite useful as you'll use computers and statistical programmes in psychology, so it never hurts to have a good grounding in IT! It's a helpful subject all round so if you think you would enjoy it, go for it! I'd definitely suggest picking a subject you can see yourself enjoying

    Is it hard though? Does it include any maths? Do you have to write a lot

    Oh that's a coincidence, I'm doing almost the exact same A Levels as you haha (except I'm doing English Literature instead of Language). Anyway if you still want a subject where you can still write essays, then out of the options you stated, Media would be a good choice. But there's a lot of practical work too, and it's quite a creative subject despite the theories you have to learn for the written exam. If that sounds like your sort of subject then Media's good (I also did it for Gcse and I really loved it!) I can't comment on IT or Photography though (although I have a friend who does Photography and it's seems very artistic in a difference sense, compared to Media, which she also does.) Either way take a look at the specifications for each of the subjects you're considering swapping English Language for, and see which one you think you will enjoy the most
