    i want to be a midwife and the required subject is biology and any related subjects. so i should i do biology psychology and health and social care? and my fourth option is french for definite. do i drop health and social care? because no offence to anyone, health and social care is seen as a softer a-level. if i do french, will they totally disregard it because the course im picking doesn't require a language? ughhhhh i dont know

    if you are/want to be midwife what a levels would you suggest for me.

    Definitely do biology. An A level in a language is good for just about any course so it's a good choice - for midwifery it shows that you can communicate effectively and it may allow you to communicate with patients who don't have English as their first language. As midwifery is a vocational course, unis tend to care more about the work experience you have and your people skills than the subjects you do as long as you have the grades. Psychology, sociology and health and social care would all be good, relevant options as long as you enjoy them and think you could do well in them.
    I wouldn't suggest doing chemistry as the person above suggested as it is really hard! Unless you are passionate about it and very good at it at gcse, I would steer clear of it
    I hope that helps
