    The subjects seem ideal for social work. Feel free to ask me questions about the subjects your leaning towards. As I am currently studying those!

    Quote me, so I can notice your reply earlier.

    Anyway, politics includes a range of topics. For Edexcel, I study: electoral system, (different ways votes + seats counted - different parties can win under different system) voting behaviour (how people vote), parliament, constitution (what makes up how the UK is run), democracy, political parties, relations between the institution (judiciary’s role etc, how it interlinks).

    It is very content heavy but it’s very interesting! Would recommend! Good luck!

    For AS Psychology, there are some aspects of science. For example genotype, phenotype, evolution theory, structure of neurones - what they do, nervous system - central nervous system and peripheral nervous system, synaptic transmission. But next year all of these topics will fall under biopsychology - this big topic is ultimately science. For example, you need to know all parts of the brain etc. Its not too much science for now, but make sure you know it well.

    What subjects are you currently studying?

    Thank you and currently I'm doing my GCSE in IT, art, history, and sociology which is my favourite, I'm think of maybe doing an undergraduate degree in maybe psychology or criminology but some unis other both as a joint honours then maybe doing my masters in social work, not sure if that will work yet though
