    hi everyone!
    a couple of days ago I went to a college open evening and it was pretty much everything I expected it would be. I basically have my 1st (geography) & 2nd subject (sociology) cemented in my brain for when I apply but I'm a little torn to what to do for my 3rd subject?
    I originally planned to take psychology as my 3rd subject but after this open evening I think I've decided it's not for me. Which leaves me between economics, photography and film studies.

    Economics seems similar to business studies but more on the marketing side which id prefer to look at, don't really know if it's for me after I read the prospectus though /:

    Film studies is an odd one because i never thought about it before the open evening but once I got talking to the teacher about the course I've become genuinely interested in it. However, they said it relates a lot to english literature which is one of my weaker subjects.

    As for photography I study it at GCSE so it's kind of no brainer to pick it but I'm just slightly bored of it and I don't know if I can carry on doing it for another 2 years.

    Anyone who does any of the subjects mentioned or not feel free to help me choose :s

    pick 4 as subjects for sure - photography seems cool, it probably spices up over the next two years, if it doesn't you can drop it.
