    I'm thinking about taking Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Psychology for A levels but my parents are against me taking Psychology as it's known as a 'soft' A level, so should I take another 'hard' a level?
    Also, I'm currently at a grammar school and my parents want me to stay there for sixth form (plus it means I can't take Psychology) but I'd much rather go to a college as I seem to be getting bored at my current school and I need a change of scenery. Should I stay at the grammar school or go to a college?

    psychology is not an easy a level, far from the opposite. study what you enjoy- not what your parents want you to do. if studying a subject you want to do means a change in scenery, then go for it.
