A level optionsWatch
I am choosing my a level options and do far I have chose history and geography. For my 3rd option either maths or RS. I’m really interested in RS although I know it’s not the most facilitating subject. I don’t think I’m going to need maths for the future uni courses as I’m probably more creative, but I want to be able to demonstrate that I can do maths as well as essay subjects. I got an 8 in my maths mock so hoping to get a 9. I would say that I’m more likely to get a better grade in RS, but I like the challenge of doing maths and science it may look better
Hope this helps
Hi! First of all, history and geography are already facilitating subjects, so I don't think it would be an issue if you decide to take RS, a less facilitating subject. I think the main question you need to ask yourself is if you actually enjoy/would enjoy maths? It's no good doing subjects at A Level only because you were/are good at them at GCSE because things get tough, you get a lot more work, and you need to have some sort of passion or want to learn in order to persevere. Maths may be good to take because it'll give you a break from reading, analysing and essay writing. However, if you would find RS more interesting and somewhat easier to get good grades, then I would say to just go for it. I am also an aspiring law student and while I do think that maths can help you because it'll develop your logical and critical thinking skills, RS being a humanity and an essay subject that involves arguments and debates that are very relevant to our society may give you more transferrable skills.
Hope this helps
