Can someone help me decide which would be the better A level to choose out of Criminology and Psychology?? I'm completely stuck on which one to pick as I find that criminology will be more interesting and an easier subject to do, however I've always wanted to do psychology because I wanna study mental health but it seems so much harder. Some body help meeeee

You won't be studying all about mental health for psychology. it is a very 'sciencey' topic. Has a lot of science and theory to remember. Criminology is more about critical analysis and too some extent, interpretation of things with a lot of theory. With criminology, you have to go in with an open mind. Criminology isn't black or white, there is no yes or no answer.

hope this helped

I've decided to study a combined course at uni - criminology and psychology together. some modules are compulsory but others you can pick and choose, so you should definitely look into this as well, not just one or the other. Both are separate but can be combined.
I've chosen Southampton and looked over their psychology modules - they have interesting topics such as intelligence, attachments. I believe they are bound to touch upon the issue of mental health regardless .. this was the same for a-levels.
