    Ive just finished my first term of A levels, for which I am doing History, RS, English Lit and Psychology. Through asking admissions officers and talking to teachers I have found that taking four is unnecessary (useful information beforehand lol) so I am looking to drop one. As a result of this I have narrowed down my likely subjects to drop as either RS or Psychology and was wondering which one would be more useful applying for law at Oxbridge. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    In terms of applying to uni, either would support your application, however, RS would only show you a more religious view of how things work and why things may happen or be explained. Psychology will show a lot of other views as to why things may happen. For example, I’ve just studied mental health in psychology and that was very interesting, now I’m moving onto criminal, which will teach us how and why people may commit crimes. Based on this and on your current a levels I would chose psychology. They have a similar approach to study and and exams. Therefore, I would base it purely off of content and which one will make your life easier (as much as you can when still a student)

    I'd pick RS instead of psychology as psychology is considered a "softer" subject.

    Also, looking at your other A levels, I would say that RS fits in better.

    Thanks for your response!

    I was also thinking something along those lines as RS is a lot more analytical.
