Hello,
I am currently a Y11 student doing music, drama and geography as my IGCSE option choices and I will be choosing my A-Levels soon. I would like to continue studying the dramatic arts at university level, so so far I know that I definitely want to take English and Drama/Theatre for my A-Levels. For my third option, I am currently torn between Biology or Geography.
However, I recently have been looking into the possibility of doing a Psychology A-Level for my third option. This is because my 'plan B', if you will, is to take up a career in psychotherapy.

For anyone who currently takes it, do you know if you have to have a GCSE in psychology to take it at A-Level? Also, do you regret choosing it? If yes, why, and if no, why not?

Thanks!
M

I did psychology and got an A. no you don’t need to take it at GCSE.

I enjoyed it a lot. research methods is kind of a bore but not too difficult - and the rest of the topics were interesting enough to make up for that. I now do psychology at uni.

Check that you won’t need 2 science subjects in order to follow through with your plan B.
