Hello, I'm not really sure what I want to do in the future, but I am in year 11 right now and need to choose what i want to do for a-levels D:

I've been looking into courses and found these 3 interesting: Geography, Economics and Psychology. Are they ok? Do they not suit each other?

Thanks

Sociology & Psychology may be a good fit because they have topics which are literally the same and are intertwined.

The ones you selected are completely fine and will get you into University without a problem but I'd delve deeper if you want your subjects to suit one another.

Economics is a good subject but I've heard it may be slightly content heavy so you'd need to give it a lot of time and Psychology definitely is too (not to say they're not manageable).

It's up to you but I'd look into Sociology too because that complements Psychology and maybe Geography too so it could be a better fit for you. Besides, I found Sociology extremely interesting and it does have one of the highest pass rates for an A-Level. Your decision is of course up to you though. x

The above subjects are good indeed. Economics and Psychology would be a good match as they both look at humans from different perspectives. Psychology and sociology really complements each other since they have similar ideas/topics such as research methods which has a higher weighting in terms of marks especially for psychology.

Sociology would also go with Economics because changes in society can be influenced by economic factors.

The decision is completely up to you. Hope you make a good choice. Even if you have finalised your choices and when you start yr 12 if you feel like you're not enjoying your subject you can speak to your head of yr/subject teachers to change to another subject.

There is nothing wrong with those choices however if you don't know what you want to do my best advice is to study at least two 'facilitating subjects' which generally keep your future options open. These include maths, literature, biology, chemistry, physics, geography, history, and modern languages.

Of course no one is saying you must study these -- it's just helpful for some. Good luck.
