    If I were to take psychology, wouldn't it waste my options as its sounds similar to biology?

    It depends what you want to study at university. If you want to study Psychology then you should definitely take it, and it works well with Biology, but if you are interested in a more 'traditional' Science-based course (Medicine, Natural Sciences, Biology etc) then having another of the three sciences or Maths (and maybe even FM) would probably be more useful. But if you think Psychology looks interesting then go for it! I've only ever heard good things from Psychology students about it. Good luck

    I'm not sure about different exam boards, but for me the subjects are not very similar at all apart from one topic. They are also very different in learning, revision and exam style. Psychology you will need to write long, exam style answers which usually don't require too much application, pretty much opposite to biology.

    Psychology is super interesting I find though, and it's definitely not hard as long as you pay attention all year and will put some effort in to revise well. Compared to my other subjects it definitely requires the least recision by far to get a top grade.
