Im currently deciding what i should pick for my a levels. So I really enjoy English Literature and Sociology enough to take it further for A levels. I thought about taking Economics and Politics for A levels as well with English lit and sociology . So do you think they all complement each other? If they dont do you think i should swap one of the economics or politics with psychology?

This is all ideally linked with what A levels would give me a better chance at studying sociology at degree level hopefully so I would really like some advise on picking the right topics.

As far as I know, there aren't any essential subjects required for Sociology, so you have more flexibility in terms of which A Levels you can take. I think that a combination out of English Literature, History, Geography, a language, Psychology, Sociology, Politics and Economics would be the most relevant to a Sociology degree, so the subjects you have chosen would be fine, although taking a second traditional subject such as History, Geography or a language may help strengthen your application

I would say avoid sociology as when you do go uni it will confuse your mind. I have a module that's all about sociology and the lecturers have told us that people who did not take sociology as their A level would find it easier to understand compared to the ones who did it as their A level. But then again it is good to get an understanding of the basics.

I would say you or choices seem to go well together. I'm doing sociology English lit and psychology now and they compliment each other really well! I would suggest doing psychology but only because I'm biased But if you like economics then go for it!
