A level choicesWatch
Hi I don't know what subjects to choose for for A Levels. I really like the idea and thought processes being Psycology and I love Art. I am also enjoying Science but I am achieving B grades. I really don't know what Career path to choose. I was considering Dentistry, Architecture, or Criminal Psycologist. Please could someone help.... 😭
You're going to have to cut down your options! At the minute the ones your courses like the most are:
Chemistry, Physics (or biology), Art, Psychology, Maths.
My biggest tip for you choosing is please go for subjects you enjoy! Don't pick a subject you don't feel passionate about because you feel obliged to take it. I have watched so many people over this year and a bit crumble and breakdown due to taking subjects they hate. I do Biology, Chemistry and Psychology (I'm in year 13 and have an AS in Religious Studies) so if you want anymore information on those just ask. When you have an idea of what you want to do, look at uni websites at their requirements and Base a decision off the ones that require the subjects you enjoy the most.
Hope I've helped and anymore questions, just ask!
thank you so much! I am sorry to be asking so many questions but it is Psycology difficult at a levels?
Personally I don't find it too difficult as it just clicks in my brain. However it is a very content heavy course and so you'll need to do a lot of revision. In AS Level edexcel psychology you do:
> About 10 key studies (participant numbers, exact method, evaluation, results, aims, conclusion)
>About 15 key theories (key terms, concepts, evaluation, application)
> 4 key practicals (aim, method, results analysis, conclusion, evaluation)
> 4 key questions (application of theories if necessary, facts, evaluation)
> A bunch of research methods (definition and evaluation of all)
> A bunch of extra studies that you don't need to know in extensive detail.
So yeah its a lot of work and revision but personally I don't find the content hard. Even if you do blank during a question you can kind of waffle it! For example in my recent formal assessment I had an 8 marker on Ainsworth and I completely forgot her participant numbers so I just made up a point about generalisability which was pretty crap tbh but I ended up getting full marks. However I do know that majority of people in my class struggle with it and don't get good grades so I guess it all depends.
thank you so much for the advice x I will be sure to ask more questions if need be 😊
