    I'm really not sure which a levels to pick, I don't know whether I should go into science or journalism
    I'm either want to pick English language, media studies, sociology and psychology or biology, psychology, sociology and English language..

    Well I did both biology and English alongside maths and physics and at the time I didn't know what I wanted to do.
    I however most enjoy English so am hopefully studying this at uni this year. My biology teacher insists I should mix Science with English and do biology journalism.. So yeah guess I'm saying go for the second one as you can still go sciency with psychology and biology but go towards creativity with English as I am

    Anecdote from my media teacher: a friend of his was at university studying something massively science-y, but decided to open and run a student newspaper. He kept this up all through his degree, and on his final day a bunch of reps came from various newspapers, and The Guardian offered him a job on the spot.

    If that's anything to go by, I wouldn't worry too much about keeping media studies in. I take media studies at the moment, and if I'm honest it's mostly common sense. Biology, a subject I also take, is less common sense and more content you must learn and will basically be dead without. And also, you can go into journalism with biology, but you can't go into biology with media studies.

    tl;dr keep biology, drop media

    Don't worry about doing media studies - virtually all of the journalists didn't ev.en do journalism at university. More academcially rigorous subjects such as history, English lit etc are preferred to journalism/media subjects
