    Defo biology as it will link extremely well with both, this would literally be a perfect match. However if you enjoy English lit more chose that.

    I’m completely biased because English Lit is my uni subject!! but I also took bio and psychology on the IB and they do really compliment each other.

    Biology would go well with Chemistry and Psychology.

    I take English Literature and I thoroughly enjoy the wide-range of interpretations that can be made from a text; there's no right/wrong answer. As long as you fulfil and include elements from all of the the Assessment Objectives, you should be achieving the top grades (A/A*).

    From what I understand, my friends who take Biology all agree that it is extremely content heavy and it requires a lot of exam practice (as do all subjects), but if this is something that you are okay with, then go for it! Biology would complement your other subjects well, however I take Psychology and the elements of Biology in it aren't difficult at all.

    One thing to note with English is that for my exam board (OCR), we are given coursework/controlled assessment which accounts for 30% of the final A-Level grade, so if you think that you will do better with coursework, go for English.
