    I want to be a primary school teacher when I'm older so am planning on doing a BEd in Primary Education. I've just chosen my A-Levels for September. Do you think they are good choices or should I swap one for English Literature?

    I've chosen:

    RS
    Psychology
    Biology
    Maths(plan to take it only to AS)

    They are pretty good choices, particularly Biology and Maths. I do psychology and really enjoy it, however it is possibly the weakest out of your four so if you want to swap one of them for Eng Lit that'd probably be the one to go for. However if I were you I'd play to your strengths and what you think you'll enjoy more than what is most respected

    I'd switch maths AS to psychology AS, as maths is much more of a traditional / respected subject, unlike/ as much as psychology. However at the end of the day it all boils down to one thing; whether you enjoy the subject or as if you thoroughly enjoy it you will evidently exceed & excel in the subject.

    English Lit is a good and well respected A-level it seems and if I was you I would probably swap psychology or RS for it
    But it is your own descision. If you enjoy those subjects the most then go for it
