    Hi, I'm close to choosing my A levels and I'm debating on what to choose as my fourth choice. my definite choices are maths, further maths, and physics as currently, I want to do bioengineering at university. However, I'm unsure whether to take government and politics or psychology at a level. Both are essay based, but I was leaning more towards politics to keep my options open. will this ruin my chances of getting into a top university as in, is it too soft? I'd accept any other suggestions too, but please don't suggest biology or chemistry as this would ruin the whole options open thing I'm going for!

    Hey there! Those are definetly good A Level choices for Bioengineering, and A level maths is a compulsory subject for any type of engineering. As a year 13 student who takes Physics, I can tell you that it goes really well with maths and for what you want to do. However, if you do want to take a fourth A Level, many universities do not care what your fourth subject is, and a lot do not even care about the third. You should research what unis want, I know maths is definitely required to at least an AS level, but other than the compulsory subjects you can do what you want.

    Thank you! That's what I'd been told by some of my teachers, but I was really worried if that would make me unsuitable for a Russell Group uni!
