    Which degree's could these lead to?

    A little background information (you could scroll down instead as my main questions are below) :
    I was thinking of taking biology at degree level, however, i believe chemistry is required at A-level. I enjoy biology a lot, but not chemistry. I'm questioning whether it would be worth taking chemistry at all because I'm unsure about venturing into the world of medicine.
    So my A-level choices without chemistry would be:
    - English Literature
    - Biology
    - Psychology
    - Art

    What could A-level art lead to?
    What could A-level biology by itself lead to?
    Is this combination a risk?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hey there you could still do a Biology degree without Chemistry! Some unis may be out of the question, but a lot will ask for A level Biology and then another science A level, which Psychology often counts as! So definitely don't rule that out, have a look at some university websites and their entry requirements. You would obviously also be open to a psychology degree, and also some healthcare courses like nursing, radiography, occupational therapy, physiotherapy etc.

    It's definitely not a risk, there are loads of degrees you could do, even things like Law!
