    The deadline for applying is the 1st of March and I'm still not 100% sure of some of my subjects. I still don't know what I want to do in life yet so I just chose the subjects I enjoy which are:

    Fine art

    I know I definitely want to do art and psychology. I thought biology would be useful alongside psychology and it is my preferred science. I have chosen history because it was the only facilitating subject that I enjoy and I have heard it is respected, although I'm a bit worried about how stressful it might be. I've looked through all the other subjects hundreds of times and I don't find any other subject that I see myself doing and enjoying so I'm going to apply for these.

    I'm wondering if this combination is okay. Is it strange that I want to do biology without another science/maths?

    These choices seem okay to me. I wasn't sure on what I wanted to do when picking my subjects for A level, so I chose ones I enjoyed too. I do Psychology, History and Textiles and people tell me that they seem like a weird combination, but I love Textiles and History, and I was really interested in Psychology. I also don't think it's strange to do Biology without another science, I know lots of people who have done just one science. If they are subjects that you think you will enjoy then go for them, and you never know you may figure out whilst studying them what exactly it is that you want to do later in life, I did

    Your subjects look like a great combination to me! From personal experience, Biology is a really good subject to have with Psychology - especially if you're considering studying it at uni. Even if you're not, it will definitely help you be more confident in many areas, for example biological psychology and mental health. Good luck!
