I would personally pick 2 or 3. Really good choices for Psychology

Chemistry is good but pretty difficult and a lot of people trip up on it at AS despite getting very good grades at gcse! That being said, you may be one of those which just flourish in it ;p

The first and second options have equally well-respected subjects, whereas the third would be less well regarded. I would go with option 2. Your English Lit grade was good so you should be able to get a good grade at A level, presuming you enjoy those four subjects. I wouldn't recommend two sciences after two B's at GCSE unless you didn't feel you revised very much. I'm sure you could cope with one but you got better grades in many other GCSE subjects - also, Chemistry contains a fair amount of Maths and your Maths grade was your lowest.

Option 2. All seems more relevant and Chemistry might be a little too hard for you given your maths grade and so on. You seem more humanities.

All A levels are hard, but I don't think the workload would be unbearable with three essay-based subjects. You can always start with Biology, Psychology, Sociology and English Lit and switch if you find it too difficult (most colleges allow you to change subjects within the first few weeks provided the timetabling works).
