    I have a few months left of year 11, and I really need to choose my A-levels, I want to take psychology but I don't think i can get the grades in science. at the moment I'm on a C in biology but I need a B. I'm hoping to get a B in higher tier to push my overall grade to a B. I also want to take history and think I can get the grade for that as I'm on a grade A so far. Any help on what other subjects to take?

    You should just take the subjects you enjoy the most, or the ones that will apply to your future career. Nobody should choose your A levels for you.

    When taking psychology i highly suggest taking one of the following: biology, physics, chemistry or math. Other subjects to take along side this include: english or history. - those subjects are useful if you want to take psychology and could really help you.

    Thanks for the help i was told to take biology as they are called "couple subjects" and fit together really well.

    Take subjects you enjoy the most. If you have a rough idea of what you want to do at Uni already, this will help so you can revolve your choices around this. Don't choose a restricted selection of subjects, allow a range but not too random, so at all, you have choices to choose from and won't be stuck or regret something.

    Thanks. I'm just struggling on this 3rd subject, it will most likely be biology.

    Thanks. To be honest, I really don't know what I want to do at Uni so it is another problem for me while choosing my A-levels

    Yeah, that is what happened to me. Just ensure you choose a range of subjects you have interest in all of them and at the end you will decide what you wish to do at Uni
