    They're all very good choices, I would suggest for your fourth choice you do something you enjoy, as the ones you have decided upon seem pretty good for the course, so just pick something that you'll really enjoy.

    Yeah. Basically what Bex said (very astutely ).

    Make sure that you pick a subject that you enjoy.

    Out of Geog and English, I would do Geography with that subject combination .

    I'd choose geography too - apparently it overlaps with biology and they make a good combination. The physical geog topics in particular can be very relevant to that sort of degree - hope this helps and good luck!

    Would Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths be major pressure?

    Gwogaraphy seems to work well with that combination for the reasons already stated.

    Good Luck with your choices - I know it's hard to decide; I'm planning to take AS Levels in September and it took me months to make a final selection. Remember you can always change your mind if your results in the proposed subjects are better or worse than expected.

    Geography seems to fit best with your combination of subjects and as ali p said it overlaps with some biology, but if you think that you would enjoy english more then do that.

    I took forever to choose mine (biology, chemistry, physics, maths and german) then went to sit in a german lesson and found the teacher so patronising i chose to do further maths instead.

    Also have you done Geography for GCSE? I know that you don't have to have GCSE geography to do it at A-level, but i've heard that you would have to do a lot of catching up.

    Either geography or English would be great, so just choose the one you prefer and/or are best at.

    Psychology, i'd say, for zoology anyway. There is usually quite a lot of study of animals in psychology.

    surely geography would be the most relevant topic if any considering your ambitions.
