Are these a-levels suitable to get into a criminal psychology degree?

I'm thinking of doing these for AS level:
-Psychology
-English Language
- Biology
-Physical Education

Would these courses help me get the right degree? These subjects are the ones that I'm best in.
Thank you

EDIT: The reason why I have physical education is so that I can go into sport science if I want to. Sports and Psychology is my passion! So I wanted to get courses that would open both pathways for me in case I change my mind.

You might also find Sociology useful.

PS. There are very few degrees that combine Criminality and Psychology as a named degree and those that do are 'lower' Universities, So you'd be better doing a general Psychology degree at a more sensible Uni (make sure its accredited by the BPS - http://www.bps.org.uk/bpslegacy/ac) and then doing a specialist post-grad clinical training in criminal behaviour on top.

Alternative - Criminal Justice or Criminology, if you are interested in criminal behaviour etc outside a clinical setting.

Thank you so much for the useful information. I got a few question for you, will it be okay to do a degree in Criminology instead? And if I choose not to do Sociology will my a-level choices still be acceptable?

Check the subject specific entry requirements for this subject at a range of different Unis - they will all be different.
