    I take the A-levels- Psychology, sociology and design technology. I don't know if this is a random combination? Or if there are any specific uni courses I can get into? I would quite like to do architecture at uni and I am wondering if this a-level combination is okay

    Just call up some of the universities that you want to go to and find out that way, that's the best way.

    You can also check out the requirements on their websites.

    If worst comes to worst you can always apply for a foundation year there and then progress onto year 1 after you finish.

    Architecture usually asks that you do physics and maths.

    Architecture needs math and physics I think. Try and look around in the universities that you would want to go to. Your combination and lead on to many other courses just because it's a mixture of subjects doesn't mean that your restricted.

    Phsycology? sociology?
    well, my advice is go for Art & design, Design & technology and physics.

    I chose maths, physics, electronics and ICT and may choose civil engineering and specialise into architectural engineering.
    So yh, physics is a very good subject and forces unis to accept you. gives you knowledge of physics nature of materials, maths, analysing (+intersting subject).
    Art is just a booster and essential thing for architecture. gives you drawing skills and creativity
    Design & technology may not contribute very much into architecture but it will be fun and easy. it helps you be creative and analysing.
    Phsycology will only help with getting through the job interview. lol. maybe widen some memorising capability.
    Sociology is for creativity and social skills but not very helpful for architect. choose it if u really want to.
    also, if u choose maths, physics, and art, trust me it is waay good. widens ur course choices. gives you nearly all engineering courses including architecture.
