I’m really struggling choosing a sixth form for next year. I have been given a place at the best grammar school in my area to study Biology AQA, History AQA, English Lit OCR, and Economics Edexcel. However, I really wanted to study psychology a level and they don’t offer that at the grammar school. So my other option is go to a regular sixth form college and do English Lit AQA, psychology AQA, biology AQA. In the future I hope to study law or psychology at degree level, hopefully at Cambridge or a Russel group and I want to get the best possible a levels. For GCSE I’m predicted all 8s and 9s, and got all 8s and 9s in my mocks. What should I do? Also any insight into the exam boards would be extremely, extremely helpful.

For law, there's no required subject for that but for psychology, it depends if you want to do it for BSc or a BA. For Psychology, you need to research what uni's entry requirements for each because for BA, you might need psychology but I think there are no entry requirements for it tbh; for a Bsc, I think you just need one science at KCL or Newcastle if I remember correctly. If you want to go to the grammar school, defo go but I strongly recommend you research on what will restrict you by not picking the other sixth form. I'm a bit concerned by you taking 4 Alevels though since it might affect you getting high grades. I want to study law at uni and I'm doing A level History so if you have any questions, feel free to ask

Thank you so so much! I completely agree about 4 a levels, it’s one of the reasons I’m not sure about the grammar school as it’s compulsory to take 4 a levels. If I was to take 3 I’d take biology, history and English.
