A-level subject help watch

    • Thread Starter

    Im thinking of taking (Economics, Biology, Philosophy and Psychology) for my A-level subjects however i am not sure what career path and uni degree this would take me in. Can someone tell me if these are good subjects to pick and what this might help me get into.
    Also should i replace any of these subjects with 'English Lit' and is this subject hard at A-level.


    english lit is indeed a hard subject as a-level, english lang is considered the 'easy' option of the two english-es. Psychology, philosophy and english lit would do extremely well for a psychology or philosophy course at uni, as the two work well with each other in lots of ways. If you're not sure what course you want to do, it's better to choose broad subjects (one science like maths, bio or psych, one arts like music, art or drama and so on) as they'll open up lots of opportunities for you.
