help your local unsure girlie with her a-levels optionsWatch
Psychology is referred to as a soft subject by others in my school, but I'm not completely sure on that. And are you sure about two essay subjects? Couldn't you drop one and take like maths or something?
I'm going to sixth form next year and I chose History, English Lit., and Psychology. I still don't know what career I want to pursue, however my options for university are either law or physcology/phychiatry (for now). I know that you can study law with these subjects, but I'm not sure about psychology or psychiatry.
For a psychology degree, you will need at least one science - for which psychology is generally considered one (if you're doing a psych degree). However I don't know of any uni that requires psychology and some prefer biology and maths. eg King's:
Required subjects: At least one of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics or Psychology.
Preferred subjects: Biology and Mathematics
