Hey, I have to choose my a level subjects in about 3 weeks and right now I'm considering History, English Language and Psychology, with French as a maybe. However, I know these are 3 very essay-based subjects, so I was wondering if anyone had an experience of taking these 3 subjects, or 3 similar essay-based subjects, and how they found it, or if you thought it was too much work. I'd consider taking French as a replacement, and if I was to take French which other a level would you recommend swapping it for?

Firstly, did you do French at GCSE and what did you get. Also, why are you picking A levels so late XD.

I loved history, chose English lit over Lang (more important, but of course that's your choice). Psychology is a popular one and apparently fun but didn't take it.

I'm doing my GCSEs in in 2020, but we have to choose our a level options by 13 December, but I'm predicted a 7 in French, 8/7 in both English and 7 in History, I haven't done Psychology before but averaging 6/7 in sciences

When I did it I just put down Maths, Film studies and History.

I changed two of those in the time leading up to starting A levels, and during the start of A levels. I wouldn't worry too much now, you can easily change them when you start . Also, those predicted grades seem really good, well done!! The highest I got at GCSEs was a 7 in Maths and a 7 in English Lang

I’m doing history, English lit/Lang combined and computer science A-levels. CS is only writing when it comes down to the coursework but that’s 2.5 out 3 that are somewhat essay based. At GCSE I got two 9’s in English and a B in history (old system). In terms of work load, presuming you like the subjects, it should be fine. The biggest trouble I am personally having with them at the moment is the expectations in essays to get marks. It’s different to GCSE.
