    I am in year 11 and currently choosing my a level options. I am going to take graphics, psychology, biology and for my fourth subject either physics or history. I don't know what I want to do as a career yet but I am really interested in space. I find memorising things and writing them down quite easy and so history is easy for me but I am bad at the essay questions as I can never finish them. I like both subjects, but I don't know which one to choose so please helppp. Also, which subject is more time-consuming?

    (I get A*/Cs in history and A/Bs in physics)

    If you're interested in space then I'd probably advise you take physics. Whilst the A level won't necessarily cover anything about space, you might find yourself wanting to study something around that at university, so physics would be the obvious option. The only problem here is that you might find this a little difficult without A-level Maths

    Ok thank you! I know it'll be difficult without a level maths but I am willing to put extra effort in

    History would be good because then you'll have a nice range of subjects, but if you want to do something with science when you are older physics is for you.
