I am having a dilemma to choose between A level Photography and Politics.I have just joined year 12 and I am doing Spanish, sociology, photography and politics however i need to drop one because i am also planning on doing EPQ , Young enterprise and many other extra curriculars and if i do 4 alevels i am not going to have enough time for everything else and find myself stressed.My job when i am older has nothing to do with photography but i enjoy taking photographs and the hands on work instead of always writing essays. I generally find politics boring but i know it is well respected and in the preferred list of subjects when applying to Uni. I am just very stuck and if you have any advise i would really appreciate it

Hii, i am in year 13 and currently take politics, i used to absolutely hate it in the start of year 12 and I was awful at it, however I started to enjoy it a lot more especially when we started looking at ideologies. It does have a lot of content but it is a interesting subject and to get good grades you need to remember a lot of evidence in your essays. However, even though I don't take photography, if you want to take a break from essay subjects go for it.

What subject do you think you might want to do at Uni?

You need to check the entry requirements at a variety of different Universities.
Just look on the appropriate course page and it will clearly state 'required' and 'preferred' subjects.
If they are very specific about subjects this may guide your decision. Also, remember that just because you are not doing photography as 'a subject' it doesnt stop you still taking photos does it.
