    So i was thinking,
    Am i limiting my options in the future by taking only sciencey subjects or?... what do you think?

    I origionally chose maths, biology, history and psychology
    then i decided i wanted to change psychology to geography...
    but then i was told i can't do maths and history together because of option boxes so now i've picked

    Maths
    Biology
    Psychology
    Geography

    good or bad?
    thanks guys

    Changing Geography for History if you can would be a better choice - more well regarded by universties; that is, if you're allowed to.

    I detested Geography at AS, despite loving it at GCSE - I just found the course incredibly boring and uninspiring; maybe do Geology instead if you can? It's a better science subject, and no, it's not just about rocks

    Haha, geology does sound interesting but my school only really does the basic A levels, no economics/philosophy/geology or anything :/
    what exam board were you on for geography?

    all u guys need to ditch the psycology, it doesn't get you into unis, so many applicants offer it at an A it becomes worthless!

    maths is a good alevel to have, heres a stat for you
    people with a maths alevel earn an average of £30,000 more than someone without maths alevel, over a lifetime.

    Ah fair enough, that's a shame.

    Ummm AQA I think - too much human geography and too much going over GCSE again for my liking. I really hated it, I went to about 30% of the lessons and managed to get a B... so maybe you should do it :p: I think it's probably the easiest A level

    I would disagree - biology isn't THAT tough, but yeah, maths is. I would say do English Literature but that's also from a biased perspective - if you're good at it, do it :yep:

    I think I would be on OCR and theres an interesting trip or two so i might take it and i'll just have to work extra hard on maths
    English is my worst nightmare so i think i'll pass on that one :rolleyes:
