Best choice for Psychology in University: Higher Maths or Higher BiologyWatch
Hello all! I am choosing my Scottish Highers courses for the 2020-2021 school year right now and need some advice. I really want to go into Psychology at University and train as a therapist or a counsellor, etc. I am, however, stuck as to whether I should take Higher Maths or Bio. I know both would be good for Psychology. The thing is, I don't like maths much as I find it a bit more challenging than other classes, but I can pass easily with hard work. Also, I only have basic knowledge of Biology and would need to work hard to catch up over the summer, but I think I would enjoy the course more than Maths. Can I have some advice, please?!
Ergo, you can probably ignore Higher Maths if you're wanting to do a Psychology degree. Doing it won't look better or give you an advantage in your apply; all you need are the grades and any required subjects like Higher Bio/Human Bio (should there be any). You also need to make sure that you'll enjoy the subject so that it further motivates you to get the best post grade that you can get.
