    Hi i want to do psychology at uni,
    I am thinking about taking these A levels, please give me you advice if they are good or if you would advise other options.

    Psychology,Biology,Geography then sociology or physics- which one is better.

    I understand its good to take maths but i am not great at it B/A standard GCSE, but will get a tutor for statistics etc
    Also i understand that english is good for essay skills, but i will teach myself the key skills etc


    thanks

    Those are good choices for psychology, you don't need maths so don't do it if you don't want to. Geography and psychology both involve essay writing anyway so don't worry about not doing english.

    For your 4th, do whichever you prefer and will get a better grade in. Physics is better respected but has a fairly high maths content (not as bad at AS though), sociology is considered 'softer' but may be more relevant to a psychology degree and since you already have 2 traditional subjects in the form of biology and geography you should be fine.
