    I have to pick my a levels soon, and was wondering what would be best.
    I want to be either a psychologist or an animator/illusrator, but keep my options open.
    Which combinations would be best?

    Well if you want to do psychology you probably want to have biology and chemistry as two of your options, and then for animator/illustrator, art is obviously another choice. If you want to do four AS/Year 1 subjects, then maybe either a language or history/English lit?

    Thank you!
    I didn't do GCSE art, could I still do it for a level or would moving image arts/media studies be better?

    I looked at Birmingham's entry requirements (don't know what uni you want to go to so I tried to go for a generic one?), and they say 'Our typical A level offer is AAB for applicants taking at least one of the following subjects: Biology/Human Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics/Statistics, Physics or Psychology. The typical offer for students who are not taking any of these subjects is AAA. Grade C in each of GCSE English and Maths', so it looks like psychology would be okay, and maths is always a good a level to take!
