    I'm going to go to sixth form in September and for my A-Levels I have chosen Biology, Chemistry and Economics. I have to choose a 4th subject but I don't know if I should choose Psychology, Politics or Geography. I don't know what I want to be when I'm older and I'm not sure which of those subject will help me the most in life... Any guidance?

    I do psychology and its pretty easy and straight forward whilst being the most interesting currently however for the exam you need to learn quite a bunch of studies so if memory is poor ill avoid.

    Geography fits really well with your subjects, could easily do an environmental course as well other sciences if your into that.
    Not sure on politics sorry (

    It all depends on the course you're heading for in university, choose your subjects according to the entry requirements in the chosen university course. They all have to be interlinked for a strong combination. For instance Economics, Maths, Physics is a strong combination.

    Most universities want 2 "Traditional" subjects such as English/Maths this makes the applications look strong.

    Personally from looking at the information provided, I would suggest choosing something which leads to a direct route but isn't too much to handle. A-levels are tough and shouldn't be underestimated. Choose 1 A-level which would be less stressful for instance Art (its time consuming but less stressful). Pick 2 Traditional subjects and 1 choice which links with the 2 traditional subjects to head to your chosen university course.

    For instance, 2Maths, Physics), (ICT), (Art) would lead to architecture.

    Recommendation for you: Politics is stressful. Choose either from psychology or geography according to your future course.

    Thank you, I have heard that in politics you can easily get a good grade because the grade boundaries are low, but then university's will know that and I think Geography would be good as it would fit in well with sciences and it is a humanity whereas Psychology is a social science which would also fit in well but I'm not sure what university course i want to do, so it's quite difficult to make my final decision.
