    At my college mainly Psychology lmao, but a lot of people also do English Literature (we have about 15 English teachers- it's actually insane)

    Maths.
    Around 600 per year take maths
    Psychology is second where I am with around 250 taking it
    Then I think it's sociology and the sciences with around 200 each

    Nationally it's maths though :woo:
