I am from Czech Republic and I am starting my a levels this semptember. I'm excited about moving etc but I don't know if I am capable of geting really good grades on a level since my English isn't perfect. I want to study psychology on Kings.
should I choose Psych + Bio + Math (statistics) and hope I will handle it? I am not really into the math but I know it would look good on the application form (but also C and lover grade wouldn't look appealing as well).
OR Psych + Bio + Fine Art (some subject which doesn't require learning by heart as much as psych and bio)? I know it would be less stresfull and easier to have good grades which is what need if I want to go to Kings.
Also, I am thinking about taking Communication and Culture instead od Fine Art. What do you think? What is the subject even about?
I would really appreciate any advice. THANK YOU

Pick A levels that will meet the entry requirements for where you want to go. Two other considerations are what are you good at that'll help you do well and what will help your further study which math and/or stats definitely will. The course info will be online.

I really wouldn't recommend taking an A level you're not strong in (maths in your case) just because it'll 'look good' to the university - if you're not good at it, you'll have to put a lot more work into it than your other subjects and so you'll inevitably neglect the performance of your other subjects. Psychology does involve a lot of statistics at A level in the new spec although being competent enough with GCSE maths or equivalent should suffice.
I'd recommend taking subjects you enjoy and you're good at - biology, psychology and another subject would be perfect
