I am in the process of choosing my A levels. I want to do psychology at uni and there are no specific requirements. I had already decided on psychology, biology and maths. After months of being indecisive on the fourth subject, I finally thought about chemistry. However, a lot of people generally do biology, chemistry and maths, so there are rumours that universities are not valuing this combination as much as they used to. I am also worried that the workload of these four subjects may be a bit heavy.
Could someone give me any advice and/or give an alternative to chemistry?
Common A level subjects? Watch

Well i agree that a lot of people do biology, maths and chemistry, and i wouldn't want to do all three myself (i just do maths and chemistry) but i don't think the workload would be too much. I do two essay subjects and get at LEAST twice as much work from then than i do from my sciencey ones. I've heard there's quite a lot to learn for biology but still not as much as say history. I'm not sure about how the combination is valued by universities, but it should be fine workload wise

im taking psychology, biology, rs (philosophy & buddhism) & maths. the workload isnt terrible. rs gives out the most essays to write, although biology core practical write-ups are just as evil.
i have a biology and a maths exam in january and its not too bad preparation wise - though as moleman3 said biology has A LOT of content in every unit (edexcel).
