    Biology
    English Lit.
    Psychology
    R.E

    Does that sound good? Be as critical as you like, better now than after I fail my subjects.

    Career-wise, I don't have anything specific in mind, but I wanted to keep my options open - perhaps something related to writing and English or Psychology and social sciences? Its just a thought.

    Thanks in advance :-)

    Looks like a Good combination, provided you genuinely enjoy all these subjects, and have the motivation and academic ability to do well in them. Best of Luck.

    They are good, but only do them if you want to do them and you think you will be good at them and enjoy them. If you do want to do them then go for it

    almost exactly the same a-levels i am going to take - psychology, biology and RS. but im going to probably do maths not english lit, although that is my 2nd choice if i cant do one of the above.

    Not for OCR, at any rate. If you're unlucky you'll get evil 8/10 mark questions in the paper but certainly nothing that requires essay style writing! I do Biology and Psychology - they're a good combination. AS Psychology exams were easy (more like the Biology paper) but the content was boring and now it's the other way around this year. Essays! ><

    Anyway, they sound like a great combo of subjects. Good luck!
