I want to study Journalism at University and i'm definitely taking English. I would like to take Psychology OR RE (not both), but I don't know which would help me more with Journalism. I would like to take History but I am not interested in the syllabus at my school. I don't know what to take but I want to get into a good university.

I think it would be a good idea to think about what kind of journalism you want to pursue, and if you're not really sure about that yet, then which one out of psychology and RE is more enjoyable to you. Considering they are both essay-based subjects, they will both help you in terms of developing writing skills and style, but having a subject you like is a lot better than doing a subject for the sake of doing it.
Personally, I think psychology would be a nice pairing with English (I did these 2 A-levels myself), and it's nice to branch out into a science-related subject while also studying literature. It allows you to venture into something different, and maybe even see how the two link. But of course, if you are more interested in RE, then by all means, go for it
I think at this point, think about what subject you may get a higher grade in (usually it's the subject you like more) as these will help with entering 'good' universities.
Hope that helps! Take care
