I am currently in year 11 and need to chose my options soon. I am thinking about either becoming a forensic psychologist or a forensic scientist, so either a psychology or a biology degree. Either way biology is a definite a-level for me however I can't decide which other two do to? Out of chemistry, maths and psychology. I've also looked at graphics and french as I enjoy both of them too but I don't think they're helpful for the degrees I want to do. I'm predicted a* in all of these except psychology which I haven't studied before. Which options should I choose, please help!!

It's largely down to personal choice and what you would enjoy studying for the next two years.
I would recommend looking at entry requirements for possible university courses you might like to do as they may have requirements of which subjects you should have at A-level.
Personally I also want to become a forensic scientist and I'm currently taking Biology, Chemistry and Maths (+ English Literature) although I'm planning on taking a chemistry degree so that may have a slight impact. All the university courses I've applied to though did say they wanted Chemistry and Maths so I'd definitely recommend checking it!
For a psychology degree, I'd assume that psychology A-level would be useful (if not essential) but I may be wrong on that.
Do you perhaps have a careers advisor at your school that would be able to help you decide? It might be worth talking to them if you do.
Good luck with your choices
