criminology sociology and classical civilisation???

i was wondering to myself if those three subjects were any good as ive read alot of forums which say a lot of different things so maybe you guys can help.
Criminology is not an A-level - it's a WJEC Certificate and not all unis accept this in lieu of a third A-level. I would strongly recommend not taking this with just two other A-levels (or at all).

The other subjects are fine :smile:

So do you think taking psychology would be better as they all would take me to the same course at uni

Any actual A-level would be better than criminology. If psychology is the most interesting one to you, then do that :smile:
As above, Criminology is not an A level - nor is it 'the same as an A level' or 'equal to an A level' or anything else your school tells you.
its a daft diploma offered bt the Welsh exam board amd is full of True Crime nonense with precious little analysis or social theory.

Do an A level, any A level that interests you, and that you will enjoy studying.
