English language/psychology/world history as fifth a levelWatch
I'm taking biology, physics, chemistry and maths. I wish to take a fifth subject but cannot decide between psychology,world history and English language. I want this subject to be relatively easy so I can manage it with my other subjects and one which would demand the least effort among all my subjects. It should improve my essay writing and analytical skills as well as increase my chances of admission into high-tier universities. Pray tell which should I choose.
Does your college allow the option to do an EPQ? I did one alongside my 4 A-Levels in Y12 which is the equivalent to an AS but independently tailored to what you enjoy. From what I've researched from admissions tutors if you do an EPQ in a relevant subject to your degree and put it in your personal statement it shows you are invested in that subject. Also, an EPQ for some universities can lower your grade entry requirements (which is probably the best benefit of it all) whereas I don't believe an AS does. That being said if they don't offer an EPQ then I'd English Language would be a good 5th option, the essays you write require you to be argumentative and analytical to hit the higher grades which is what you're looking for. I'd have a look on your subjects exam board and become acquianted with what they require you to do since it differs board to board. Hope this helped, good luck!
