    I have my college opening evening tomorrow and can apply then if I want to but I'm not 100% sure on the A-levels I want to take. I want to take Geography, Psychology, English languages and Biology. Are these A-levels that top universities would value and good ones to take?!

    It solely depends on what degree you want to do and what profession you want to go into. I would say they seem to be a good mix though.

    It depends on what you want to do with them in the end, really. Facilitating subjects are always good though - Geography and Biology are both well respected.

    I took Biology, Geography and English Language and got in the University of Manchester to study Environmental Science I did find, however, that taking Chemistry would have opened a lot more doors for me.

    Just a consideration!

    Thanks guys! I'm really interested in science and think I'll end up going down that route in later life but I have no clue what university. I was thinking about chemistry but I'm only predicted a B at GCSE by the end of Year 11 which I feel isn't good enough to do it at A level
