Hi,

Currently I’ve chosen to do history, English literature and French. However, I am stuck between psychology, biology and chemistry, more leaning towards either biology or psychology. Which one should I choose? Does psychology count as a proper science or not? Would biology be a more respected choice? Please help

Psychology is normally not counted as a proper science. Biology and chemistry are both equally content heavy with chemistry being harder and biology more memory based. Psychology subjectively would appear the easiest option, but go for what you think you can excel in.

Biology would be more respected as it is a 'hard' subject and a science, whereas Psychology is a soft, non-facilitating subject. However, choose whichever you think you will enjoy more if you don't enjoy it you can always swap in the first couple of weeks. People tend to look at what grade you got before the subject it was in, so make sure you take subjects you enjoy because you will be more motivated put in the work.

Edit: Forgot to mention - I do both Biology and Psychology (currently in year 12), personally I prefer Biology even though it is more challenging than Psych, but I've heard from year 13s that Psychology doesn't really get much harder, whereas the sciences do, so maybe keep that in mind?

My friend does Bio, Chem, and Psyc, and her favourite is Biology, becuase she thinks Chemistry is fundamentally the most compicated, and Psyc is a lot of work, most of which she already knew. I do Biology too nad its my favourite subject.
