    I am planning to study medicine and want to know which A- Level is good for getting an 'A' grade in and looks 'good' on the applications:

    A-Level Psychology or
    A-Level Religious Studies or
    A-Level ICT

    help is appreciated.
    Thanks

    Out of those three, I'd choose Psychology, as I'd imagine it's more well-respected than RS or ICT.

    As for which is easier to get an A in, I don't really know.

    What other subjects are you doing?

    What do you want to do?

    Supposedly RS is good for things that include people, such as public services (how to deal with people of different religions etc)

    Psychology is obviously good for knowing how people work and what not

    ..and ICT.. is just ICT.

    My friends told me they find Psychology hard, don't have any friends who do RS though. I'd choose psych out of them though, if you're good with essays.

    You should probably choose Psychology but there are better A-Levels which you could choose.

    Psychology is very interesting. I would take that if I were you (well, I am :p:) but be aware that some Universities do not include it as a Science on their admissions requirements!

    Just ensure that you have chosen Maths, Biology and Chemistry (recommended). Psychology would go well out of those options, as you need an essay writing subject.

    Have you considered History?

    BTW I'm sure RS is more respected than Psychology but I may be wrong.

    Religious studies is also an essay writing subject.

    You don't 'need' maths! :rolleyes:

    What about History? Now thats a reputable, academic subject....though for ease of study go for psychology as others have said.
