I like the concept of psychology but I hate essay writingWatch
So I do a level maths, physics and biology. Mainly because I'm naturally good at the subjects and I like the fact that there is only one answer. My brains like binary, it's either true or false. For a while I've always been interested in the human psyche and the way we think and behave. However, I find it really difficult to write essays. Most often my brain works as if there's only one answer. If psychology exams were like biology, I would definitely choose it. Do you think I should study/become a psychologist despite my terrible essay skills?
The great thing about a skill is that there will always be room to improve - no one is born with the ability to do everything perfectly! Try not to let your current essay skills stop you from doing what you enjoy. It might be worth speaking to a teacher to see what they suggest.
When I studied Psychology at A-Level I wasn't too great at the essay/long answer questions, so I got a tutor to help me. She helped me focus on structuring my essays so naturally writing them became easier, so there is definitely hope for you!
There are also loads of resources online too which can give you tips for essay writing.
Hope this helps and good luck!
In some areas of psychology there is only one answer (that we know of), like statistics, neuro-biology, anatomy etc...
