Hey

I hope your current studies are going well.

I did Psychology and Philosophy for my A-Levels, and I'm currently in my Second Year of Psychology at UoP.

First off it is the most important thing to pick subjects that you enjoy, and only you can determine that! You want to enjoy the subjects as you are going to be studying them for 2 years!

I would say that Psychology is a good A-Level to pick, I found the work load manageable and it covers a lot of areas that are applicable to lots of different degrees. For example essay writing, statistics, report writing and practical experiments. As for Philosophy, Universities may generally like this on an application is it is another whole rounded subject.

I would say that those three subjects are a great combination as they all include different areas, which may benefit you in the future.
Saying that, it is definitely the most important thing to pick what you will enjoy the most!

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions

I think I would enjoy them and I have no clue what I want to do when I'm older. I just want to enjoy what I do and make a living off this.

Hi there,

I am a student at University of Portsmouth.
There is a no such thing as bad choices for A- Levels. Peoples selections depend on what they enjoy, are good at, and what they wish to do in the future. If these subjects are ones you enjoy, then take them for sure. Remember it is you doing them so try to make it your decision on what subjects you pick. All three are respectable choices and will leave most university courses open to you if that's a path you're considering. Only specialist subjects like medicine and engineering will be unavailable as they require maths.

Hope this helps
