    I think that would be good! The top UNIs would like a science and a humanity subject. But most UNIs would like Psychology at A level, at least as an AS!

    Really good mix. Psychology contains a lot of biology and stats at uni, so you've got yourself a good prep.

    Good mix, but bare in mind some (but not all) universities may look for psychology at A level.

    so if i were to consider potentially swapping geography for psychology, would that be better and will that range of A-Levels open me to doing anything?

    I'm not aware of any universities that actually require psychology, many will accept it as a science for psychology entry, but A Level psychology is very far removed from even first year undergraduate studies.

    I'm not saying they don't exist by the way, just interested to know which they are

    OP very good mix, Maths will hold you in excellent stead. Get your head around Normal Distribution and Chi-Squared, you'll be golden!
