I recently chose Biology, Geography, Combined English Lit & Lang and Economics as my a-levels for college. I want to do something related to life sciences like biotech or bio-medical science. Not sure if I can still go on to do my chosen degree or if there are other degrees better suited to my a-level choices.

If you can change one of your A-levels(except biology), chemistry would be more suitable. Yours are too essay/humanities based currently for those degrees.

So what would degrees you recommend as an alternative.

Have a look at entry requirements to see what you can do but go with what you're interested in. The poster above is right about needing two sciences for a life sciences degree.

I'd recommend doing what you love. If that's the life sciences then you should change one of your options.

I would replace one of those choices with Chemistry (keeping Biology). Otherwise that combination isn't ideal training for a degree in the life sciences, particularly if you go down the biochem/biotech/biomed route.
