I am currently in my last year of GCSEs and am now choosing my A-Levels. For my GCSE options I chose: Triple Science, History and Spanish.
For my A-Levels I have already chosen Spanish and History because I have a passion for these subjects. I now have decided to choose between Psychology and Government + Politics. Also between Maths and Biology.
Which subjects do you think fit best with history and Spanish?
How are the levels of difficulty within the subjects?
What do you think I should choose?

Thank you

depends what you want to study at university

but if you don't know then of psycology and politics I would say politics is more fitting but choose what you'd enjoy. Then I'd pick maths over biology unless you need or enjoy it more.

its honestly more about what you want to do in the future, quote me and tell me what you want to do in the future and I'll tell you what I think would be best?

Honestly, I have no idea what I want to do in the future. I think I’m swaying towards maths more than biology because of the amount off essay writing I’d need to do in the other subjects. I have never been taught psychology or government and politics before so I don’t know which one I prefer.

Why? Are there lots of essay writing in them? If yes, then would maths be a better option than biology because of that?

i did a degree in biology. this is an a level with a big workload and has no relevance whatsoever to your other subjects. politics, hist and spanish are good choices for a degree in international relations if not politics, hist or spanish themselves.

but if youre good at maths you can't generally go wrong with that

I dont think either would really give you many more options, but politics is definately more fitting with the subjects you have chosen, whereas psycology may look abit random

take biology because it shows that you are well rounded and that you aren't just writing essays, but that you also have other transferable skills

Government and politics I’d say fits best with history and Spanish, but do what you’d enjoy most not what fits best idk.

I’ve heard that all the subjects I am thinking of taking are quite essay based so do you think I’d need to replace one with maths to try and even it out?
