    If you are satisfied with your choices and believe they will lead you to a suitable degree of achievement, then there isn't anything to criticise here. Theology and Religious Studies degrees are generally lacking in very specific entry criteria (you won't be expected to have studied the subject before, but you will be expected to have fostered an interest in it). The usual advice applies, use the opportunity to develop your writing skills and to read around your subject, although don't expect to make the transition into academic work that seems very similar to what or how you studied at A Level.

    Your choices are fine. English Lit is a strong subject, Psychology and Sociology will complement each other well and Religious Studies will obviously help you understand/give you an insight into what a RS degree might entail slightly. Just take subjects that you enjoy and that you think you'll be able to do well. Don't bother listening to people who tell you subjects are soft etc. because most top universities accept less "rigorous" subjects and theology isn't really competitive, so you'll probably be fine getting in Good luck!

    They sound like good choices - the RS/EngLit combination will lead nicely into your degree; and according to my friends Psychology/Sociology combination work well because they cross over at points.
