    I am thinking of taking English Literature, History and Geography for A Level but am undecided on the fourth. I originally decided Biology as it is my favourite science but after getting Bs in my science mocks (I take triple science and am predicted all A*s) I am just not sure if I will be good enough at it and as I am not taking Chemistry with it I dont see it being useful in the future.

    So I was thinking of taking either Psychology or French instead, which do people think would be the better option and complement my other subjects? I am aware I already have several essay-based subjects.

    I enjoy French and am getting A*s in but have been told its very difficult, while I have never studied Psychology so it would be a risk, but it appeals to me a lot. Any guidance, opinions on the subjects or other subjects would be useful

    Your right A level courses are a massive step up from GCSEs. Best advice---> Ask your teachers they know your strengths and weaknesses in your subject, they can also give you advice about the course next year and how they think you will cope with it. Also, if you have a careers adviser at school it might be worth talking to them, the subjects you choose will heavily influence you University course choice therefore its good to keep your subject base open, so yeah best advice from me is to go to your teachers, good luck.
