Hi ,

I have just completed my second year of college and will be going into my third year this week. I am going to be studying AS-Level Graphic Design & Illustration, Psychology and also a level 3 award in Journalism. However, I am unsure about studying Psychology since I only have an interest in some of its topics.

The reason I want to study Psychology is because I want to purse a career in Speech and Language Therapy. I have looked at all of the universities which offer the course but the one I preferably want to study at is Reading. However, Reading's entry requirements for its SLT course is AAA-AAB (A-levels) and I have achieved A (English Language & Literature), B (Fine Art) and B (Photography); additionally I have a C for AS-Level Creative Writing.

Adding to my problem, I know most SLT courses preferably want you to have taken a modern foreign language or science-based A-Level course. Although, my A-level background is more Language (English) and Art based. I know Reading doesn't specify its preferred subject choice but, considering I got ABB compared to its requirements of AAA-AAB, I don't think they'll accept me. Will taking AS-level Psychology provide me with more of an advantage or do you think it won't really make any difference and I should just drop it?
