Should I switch ALevel Psychology for ALevel Business?

I am doing a GCSE in Business but not in Psychology and I chose Psychology for ALevel. Should I do ALevel Business instead?

do whichever you’re interested in and depends on which career you’d like to get into, although business and psychology isn’t a tie breaker to getting a university offer like chem is for med or maths is for an economics course.

Depends on your career goals! What i've heard from A level Psychology is that there is a ton of content, not a lot of people are actually exceeding B's. I do A level business- first year will be a breeze for you ( mainly covering GCSE content), 2 year is fine- lots of people are getting above B's id say 70%! So, easy B/A/A* if that' what you are looking for. Best of luck for your exams

lots of schools dont actually offer gcse psychology but they do offer it at alevel. I do alevel psychology and its my fav alevel so far. It is content heavy as there are so many studies that you need to know but so far so good. However for business, i dont actually do business but my best friend done it in gcses and is now doing it for alevels. She finds alevel business easy but so boring (mainly because of the teacher) but shes not at all struggling with it. I would say look at what you want to study after sixth form/college and see if it would be better to study alevel psychology or alevel business.
