Hii so at the moment I’m in year 9 and I have chosen psychology, art, geography and dual ( French and Spanish ). These are my subjects chosen along with the cores. I’m happy with geography and art as I enjoy them and I think I could get an a/a*. Although, I’m very confused about the other two. by the way, I wanna be a lawyer. I’ve always thought I’m definitely gonna take psychology but now I’m having second thoughts. I’ve heard it has a much too heavy workload and it’s not that useful. Do you think it will help me when I want to become a lawyer?. And I’ve only been taking dual languages for a month now, so I barely know any French and good amount of Spanish. A while ago I had a mock Spanish and French test and I did very badly, so I’m thinking of focusing on one. I love drama so much and I look forward to drama lessons every week, but I’m not sure 2 arts would benefit me, and if I could get a good grade in drama. I’m not 100% of my future job either. I wanna do my gcse and see which subjects I did best in. I’m in set 3 maths and set 2 and 1 do further maths. Should I ask to move up to set 2 so I can do further and finish my gcse math in feb 2019? And is triple science good ? I’m in set 2 science, set 1 geography. Also, is media any good? I’m good at things like photoshop and photography etc so should I replace psychology with either media or drama? Or keep it the same? I’m not sure how to even feel about psychology and media as I’ve never taken any lessons on them.

It’s like classes based on your level of knowledge so set 1 math would be the hardest , last set would be easiest

Well that is a bit discriminatory.


Workloads at gcse isn't really that big of a deal.

It's however you may be in set 3 for a reason and some of the futher maths components could be too difficult for you but I don't know.

Hi. I'm taking my GCSES at the moment. I think your subjects sound good and if you enjoy them and/or are good at them, it makes sense to choose them. It's all kind of up to your preferences, because when you apply for a law degree, they will look at what you got in your GCSES, rather than whether or not you did psychology. On the contrary, they do care that you get good grades in the core subjects, so your focus should be them. What you do for A level is much more important than what you chose for GCSES in terms of career path. So from my point of you, if you enjoy these subjects take them. BTW I don't do psychology so can't comment on the "workload". Hope my insight helps you. I should probably be preparing for my exam which is in 40 mins but oh well got bored.
