    I definitely will be doing English Literature and Psychology but I'm unsure on whether to do Photography or Biology. I know universities see photography as a much less useful and weaker a-level compared to biology, but I just find photography so interesting and a great creative outlet and I'm aware that I guess photography is a little less useful than biology, however biology is much more highly regarded and I some what enjoy and find it the easiest science. This all isn't helped by I don't really have a clue on degree I want to go on to do so am trying to keep my options open.

    Do photography as you are more interested in it. Don't take biology A-Level because it makes you seem smart that is the reason people fail with things such as no motivation

    If you're undecided on what to do, then I think Biology will be better as it will probably look better whatever degree you decide to apply for. If you think you can do well in this, go for it

    You don't have to do an A Level in photography to pursue it, you can always keep it a hobby and your creative outlet.

    I'm taking psychology and eng lit too!
    If you wanted to continue psychology you'll need biology or a science. If you wanted to do maybe and English lit degree it really doesn't matter, take photography.
    Also photography is apparently quite hard and the work load is huge so surely it's not a soft subject. (?)
    If you're only taking 3 though I'd say do biology and if you hate in the first few weeks you can change it, also if the uni you apply to doesn't like photography then they might only view you as having done 2 academic a levels. Idk though. Depends if you want to go to a Russell group really.

    It all depends on why you are doing A levels - job, University, or just another spending 2 years with your school mates?
