    Chemistry I suspect. Psychology would be complimentary as well.

    A good set would be:
    Psychology
    Biology
    Maths

    Then any other subject of your choice just to show a mix of skills (if your school is doing 4 a-levels) e.g.English Lit, Philosophy (and chemistry would be good too but probably not compulsory) etc

    A good combination might be: Biology, Psychology, Mathematics and maybe another science like Chemistry but it doesn't matter as Universities really only look at the first 3. So do something which you really enjoy to study

    Haha, woah. In that case, I would recommend English Lit if you were good at it at GCSE and just because it is a reputable subject that displays your ability to write essays which are needed for a psychology degree or medical degree of any sort.
    Philosophy is quite difficult for some people I am aware. But chemistry would also be quite good as well. It's a difficult choice I admit!

    I'd say probably Psychology, Chemistry and Biology (I suspect you would learn the necessary maths in Chemistry and Biology), and then whatever you most enjoy/was your best performing at GCSE

    I don't preticullaly like chemistry nor am I perticullaly good at it I took triple science at GCSE so we do 3 papers I got As in the first two papers but a U in the final paper so they would let me take it at Alevel which could let me become a neuroscientist and i got an A in English lit but I don't really like that either however philosophy looks great
    But I've heard it's useless and difficult

    You need to decide whether you want to do neurology, neuroscience or neuropsychology. They're all different and have different requirements.

    Neuropsychology
    In that case you don't need maths or biology specifically, although a lot of universities ask for one or two sciences. You'll need to study Psychology at undergrad
