    Hi to whoever's reading this,
    I am currently in year 11 doing the New gcse for all of my subjects, I am doing:
    Triple science, higher maths, English, Re, history, geography, French and Product design.
    I am in set 1 and I get good grades especially in geography.
    Anyho, I am considering doing the following a levels: Geography, Sociology, Psychology and Biology.
    But, in my 6th form we are not allowed to do 4 a levels even if we get a high average.
    So I am not sure as to what 3 of those 4 I should do because if I were to not do biology then I don't know what degree or good job I could go onto doing with the other 3 a levels.
    However, If I chose biology I don't know what 2 of the other 3 a levels I'd do but with a biology a level I could do either veternaity nursing or a children's nurse options which seems a safer option considering they only require BBC with a B for biology.
    For me to do biology a level I need a 7 at gcse, which I would have to work really hard for.
    also, I am not sure if I'll be able to manage biology a level since I've heard that it is very difficult and heavy content based.
    What are your opinions? Should I do biology? if so with what other 2 a levels? how difficult can it be to get a B for biology a level?
    p.s for my AS I have to pick between EPQ or core maths so I'm thinking of core maths?
    MANY THANKS LOVE U GUYS ALL COMMENTS WILL BE APPRECIATED ♡
    Much love, a stressed gcse student,
    p.p.s any tips for my final week's before my gcse exams? they can include how to learn and memrise everything in such a short amount of time or how to deal with everything especially that we haven't covered half of the biology content yet due to the change in gcses!

    If it was me, I'd drop either Sociology or Psychology, as they're similarish?
