French or Psychology a-level? I think I’ve already asked this question but I’m going to ask it again and word it differently lol. Basically I am either thinking of taking chemistry, biology and psychology or chemistry, biology and french. I think chemistry and biology would be quite difficult for me and I want to ensure that I can do as best I can for them. I am amazing at french and predicted like a 9 at GCSE. I find languages really easy and it would definitely be less of a challenge for me than psychology. On top of that, psychology seems a bit pretentious to me, I don’t know why but when I was doing some work for the entry assignment thing for psychology I just didn’t really enjoy it. However, I feel like chem,bio and psychology fits in great together and that psychology opens me up to a lot more job opportunities than French. What do I take?

psychology takes a lot of memorisation, it's a content heavy A-level. Do not do it if you do not like it. Are you keen on bio and chem? I do them, and love them both, but chemistry is a nightmare. Bio, chem and psych is a heavy load.

You are right, it doesn’t interest me at all. I am extremely keen to do biology and I feel that getting a job within that field would probably require chemistry. I don’t mind chemistry and I’m pretty good at it. I got a 7 in my year 11 mocks from literally just teaching myself because my chemistry teacher is terrible lol.

I think chemistry is often needed, but there are always ways around not having a subject, so don't take a hard a-level just for that. Check uni websites. Don't do psych then. Do a bio degree, I think that needs bio, chem, and something else

French because if you're good at learning languages and you were predicted a high grade then do that. There's so many opportunities that come with learning a new language and especially when you've got an a-level in it.
