Hey Guys,

So I'm picking my A-levels currently, and I have a pretty good idea on what I want to go onto and stuff like that. I want to progress to University and either become a Pharmacist or Dispensing Optician. However, one thing stopping me is my battle between choosing Biology and Psychology. The reason why I'm kinda scared to choose Biology is because I'm slightly worried whether I'll get good grades in that, seeing as many subjects are linear nowadays. However with Psychology, I feel like I may do better as I'm quite analytical and I'm into how the brain works. But I still need to keep my career in mind and unfortunately, so far with my research, I've found out that Psychology doesn't really play any part in Pharmacy or Optician.

I'm just really stuck on this decision, I hope you can help.

Thanks!

Biology. It's more facilitating.

I'm guessing you're taking Chemistry too for pharmacy?

Um
Psychology =/= science how dare you say that

Obv biology. Ideally I'd advise you to take bio, Chem and maths.

Choose just biology or take both if you really really want to do psychology. Chemistry is a compulsory A Level to have if you want to go into pharmacy.Most science degrees require chemistry anyway
