Confused again: I need to choose two between Psychology, Economics, and History.

I've already chosen Math and Physics, and need to choose two from the options above.

Not sure what I want to do in the future. Any recommendations or advice about what I should pick?

i would suggest history over econ or psychology. My opinion may come off as biased but from what i know psychology is seen as a "soft" subject and econ (according to many) is boring and that alone is enough to make it difficult. I'd say go with what you most enjoy out of the three.(which is history for me).

I did History and enjoyed it. I have a friend who did Economics and didn't, although I suspect that was because he wasn't very good at Maths. It seems to me like similar kinds of skills are being tested in Maths and Economics. However, you've already said you'll be doing Maths, so that won't be an issue for you. I have almost no experience of Psychology.

My advice to you is to think about what you REALLY want to do. Remember that you'll be doing these subjects for 2 years, so make sure you enjoy them. Also, if you haven't already, try to have a look at the content that will be covered in your courses. Don't just go on your previous experience of these subjects. History A-level is completely different to History GCSE, for example.

I hope this helps!
