I'm a secondary 2 student in my country. So, which subjects should I take in IGCSE to become a writer or a psychologist? Can you suggest one for me between computer science and biology?

Could you give me suggestions for my life and career? I really appreciate each of your suggestions. Thank you very much!!

Thank you comment icon Actually, I'm not familiar with the IGCSE but if I want to choose a better field between this two, it will be writing. It will broaden your level of communication and understanding. You will have the opportunity to choose between different jobs in any industry such as pharmaceutical company, media industry, teaching industry and others. You will even get the chance to write books that will influence different generations. Hammed Ashiru

Hello!

I'm not sure which subjects are available at your schools but for IGCSE, you need to take science, math, and English. If you have the ability to choose specific things in those topics, I'd prioritize biology, human anatomy, and statistics. These three help build a good base for psychology.

I'd also recommend philosophy and sociology for the psychology path!

I'm not very familiar with the subject of psychology, but with regards to the subjects for being a writer I'd recommend you start with English literature. This area will cover drama, prose, modern literature, poetry and even Shakespeare's works. As writer myself I'd recommend brushing up on the fundamental structure of story telling, and maybe delve a bit into script writing. Just like psychology the field of writing is always growing and evolving. Be sure to keep exploring and subject matter in both fields that grabs your curiosity.

While I am not familiar with IGCSE, I would suggest taking classes on writing, including English literature, and some business communications classes. Also, I would suggest taking psychology, sociology, and biology as well as any courses that focus on understanding how the mind works. You may want to subscribe to publications on these topics to help increase your understanding. Good luck!
