AS Psychology
Core Maths
AS Maths
A level Biology
A level Economics


or
Core Maths
AS Maths
A level Biology
A level Economics
BTEC Science

or
Core Maths
AS Maths

I've never done psychology in my life which is why i probably want to take it as an AS but i dont know if should drop BTEC Science and do psychology instead.

I know it can be really frustrating and annoying. I think you should talk to your parents, or if not them then your teachers (they'll tell you your strengths and weaknesses and give great advice) or if you have career advisors in your school talk to them. Ask as many questions as you want to a lot of people with experiences, and then when you're satisfied, go with your heart. Personally, I don't know how BTEC is different from Edexcel or CIE, so can't really say but I think you should go with the first set of options cuz they seem more inclined towards the Biology field which you're kinda interested in...

The thing is I think BTEC Science gives more UCAS points than AS Psychology

Also i've spoken to my friends at they tell me whatever option i choose probably will get me into a university.

Thanks for responding BTW i've constantly been stressing about this for the past 2 weeks.

I can't really say anything because I'm not in uni right now (doing A levels) and I don't know you so Idk how you perform academically, but as long as you get good grades they'll accept you. Just work hard and don't tire yourself out and don't stress and try to have fun with everything.

It also depends on the university you want to enroll in like some don't accept you with just AS levels they want A levels too. But ofc with good grades in GCSEs and AS and A levels they can make exceptions...

The thing is, I wanted to do A level maths but i only got a 6. So my teachers advised me that i do core maths and smash the exam so i could do AS Maths at year 13.
