Help? Dropping an A-level - want to do independent study.Watch
In my GCSEs, I will admit I did dazzlingly; I believe I got the 5th highest results in my year (we compete at my school I guess). Now, I completely disregarded this and took A-level Drama as opposed to challenging myself with something that could help me in the future. Im stupid.
I should’ve taken Psychology because Drama is a ball-ache, and isnt offered as an AS at my school. We’ve just got our exam timetables, however.
I’m so desperate to drop drama!!!
*I dont want to resit y12 as this might put me at a disadvantage and its only 1 subject I want to take up, and Im not doing particularly bad either.
*If I only sit 2 a-levels in y13 but take up psychology as an AS next year, i would have to continue into a gap year to complete the A-level however this may disadvantage me as I want to go to a prestigious university
*My ideal option would be to drop drama now and self-study during the periods where I would have drama. Im going to pitch this after half term.
* I have never studied Psychology so I have very limited knowledge
* I’m not sure whether I’d be able to sit an AS exam for Psychology
* How the f*** would I go about learning 6 months of AS level psychology at turbo speed?
ANY advice on any of these issues would be helpful; where do I start? How do I study? Where do I find information on how to structure essays, or what content to learn etc? How can I get support for this subject? Would I be better off attending the lesson itself considering I am so far behind?
Im going to speak to my friends who do psychology and seek their notes from them however this might not help me to fully understand ?!?
TL;DR!!!!! - I am a moron who took the wrong subject; I want to take Psychology but I’m 6 months into AS levels. How do I Psychology. Thank you
The most common exam board for A-Level Psychology (AQA) doesn’t do As... I’d check with your school for the exam board before anything. A-Level Psych is a veryyyyyyyy content heavy course and I’d personally struggle to self teach it. If your school does offer it would there be the option to sit in with any lessons you have free when they’re teaching? Or perhaps hire a private tutor... it probably would be possible without any guidance if you really work for it though.
im doing sociology in one year. last year i did french further maths and maths and hated further maths, it is the most boring thing anyone could do. I'm doing an AS this year in it, alongside a level socio, maths and french.
