So I'm having to pick my a level courses and want to make sure I pick the right subjects, that are respected and won't restrict me. At GCSEs I am currently doing RS, maths, both English, maths, triple science and psychology, food technology, geography and German.
I would definitely like to go to a top universitiy and am currently wantimg to do something to do with finance/money or psychology.
What Alevels would you recommend. Thanks!

Business Studies is usually a good start if you want to do an Accountancy course, and with that I suggest taking Maths, too. For Psychology, well, choose Psychology

For psych most uni's want two sciences (maths is included as a "science" I believe) - you don't NEED psychology A Level but would be pretty handy obviously. Something along the lines of psych biology and maths would probably be the perfect combination

For accountancy you almost 100% need maths, other than that nothing specific. Suggest looking at some uni's websites you're interested in and see what they say


I'd make your mind up and choose either or, though. They're very different subjects and if you try and compromise so you have the option for both you may find that it's too varied and you don't have options for either
