    Biology and psychology link together nicely. English will prepare you for essay writing.

    I’m in year 13 studying those 3 subjects (and business studies) and I’m going to university next year to study Psychology and Neuroscience

    As a poster above said, Psychology and biology link together well (you’ll probably even do some biology modules in psychology A-Level, such as Biopsychology - my favourite). Psychology A-Level is very much essay based, across most if not all of the exam boards. This is where English comes in handy as it prepares you for the amount of writing and also helps you to write more quickly and coherently
    Hope this helped! And I hope your GCSE’s go well for you

    Psychology goes perfectly with those subjects. There are lots of combined courses (like Psychology and Education Studies for example) but they are generally not as strong as a pure Psychology degree.

    Within your degree, there is a lot of biology within Biological Psychology (a key module in all BPS accredited courses) and there is a lot of essay writing and analysing text, so English would be perfect for that.

    I can’t really comment on A Levels as I took mine before the course changed, but I’m a second year psychology student at university, and it seems like you’re on the perfect track for a degree in Psychology.
