    I'm in year 11 and am hoping to study Pcychology at univercity, i was debating whether i should study A level or IB, in the end i chose to do A level and these are my choices atm:

    Biology

    History

    Maths

    Physics

    Do you think those choices a sensible for what i want to study at univercity? (my school doesn't do psychology for a level )

    Those are very good subjects as a combination; however, I fail to see how they are suited to Psychology.

    Perhaps it would put you in a more favourable position to choose more Arts subjects such as English Literature? I would suggest exchanging Biology for the aforementioned A-level.

    See this for more details.

    I would NOT swap Biology for English Literature! KEEP Biology, possibly swap Physics as that is the least relevant!

    I fail to see how Biology is more relevant than Physics? I suggested the latter as it would help demonstrate a mathematical prowess - suggesting a wider range of skills.

    Psychology at university = biology.

    Keep biology!

    Also keep maths as there's loads of stats at university.

    Change physics for something like geography, english literature, english language, or psychology itself.

    You may want to do chemistry as there's a lot of stuff on neuroscience, drugs, and chemicals at university too.

    Biology, Chemistry, Maths and English Literature/History are all excellent subjects for studying Psychology. Therefore, you don't need to take Physics.

    Of course, if you want to do Physics, then that's completely up to you! =)
