    Well, which subjects would you consider? No good people just saying random subjects.

    Sociology is useful and apparently very easy to pass

    Do 3 A-levels you enjoy and can do well at.

    If you like art at GCSE it's likely you will also like it at A-level. Yes there's a fair bit of "work", but it's doing something you enjoy and are good at.

    Don't discount it.

    I would try to have a think about what you want to do after your A-levels first. It might be that a certain career or uni degree specifies certain subjects at A-level, so by picking "easy" A-levels, you might limit your options.

    if you want to take it because you like it/it will help you then go for it but if you want to take it because you think its easy then thats a big mistake

    I would 100% avoid psychology, everyone does it, loads of people regret it. It’s such hard work and there’s so much information to learn. I do drama and I think it’s quite good, there’s not too much revision involved and you’ll be alright as long as you’re good at English
