Biology and psychology sound really good. Id deffinately stick with those.
English literature is a respected subject and would deffinately worth considering.
Id suggest you look into sociology. It is a good subject and would be suited to criminology. I did it at a-level if you ever wanted any advice on it.

I would suggest that you do Religious Studies (You get to learn a lot about Philosophy & Ethics (for AQA at least) which would be great for studying criminology! )

I'm currently doing it at A2 so I'll gladly give you any advice on it if you want.

I would say that the only problem with doing Sociology and Psychology is that it is a lot of essay writing, and my friends that did both subjects did well in one and failed miserably in the other so..

To the OP as long as you do at least one essay-based subject and no 'wishy-washy' subjects you should be alright. I applied for criminology this year and I did Biology (dropped it in A2), English Lit, Psychology and ICT.

I know a couple of people who did both as well. They did well in both subjects. I guess it just depends on the person.
Id recommend that the OP look into both subjects and decide if they would want to/would be able to do both.
