    So I'm choosing my A level options soon and wanted to know which combination of subjects fit together best and sounds most interesting because I'm torn.
    English Lit, Geography and Psychology
    Or
    English Lit, Geography and Government and Politics

    Regarding what I want to do in the future, I have no idea. I'm pretty sure I want to go to university, however not exactly sure what I wanna do there. Probably either English or Geography but maybe something 'different'.

    Any advice would be much appreciated

    Both are good combinations but since you seem to be going down the humanities route I would say choose government and politics over psychology. Psychology is not what you think it is at a level and unless you're completely interested it'll probably bore you to death. A lot of research methods, case studies etc. GovPol really teaches you a lot about the way our country works and will help open your knowledge and you may even find an interest in international relations/politics that you never knew you had! It's more of an essay based subject whereas psychology is more sciencey.
