    Biology and Psychology are usually taken together for nursing or mental health due to the obvious links, plus the courses overlap slightly. I wouldnt do all 3 as youre limiting yourself. Think about another science or maths/statistics.

    Biology,Psychology + one other subject of your choice. It could be anything so think about what you enjoy or might be helpful in the degree. It could be completely unrelated like Politics or could be related such as chemistry
