Are my A level choices strong enough? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I am hoping to go to a strong university and I am not sure if my choices are good enough? I want to do something with psychology in the future.
    My plans at the moment are to do:
    - Psychology
    - Maths
    - French
    - Biology ( an option)
    I only have to do 3 so I may or may not do a fourth.

    Yes, those are very strong choices for a career in psychology. I do biology and psychology and they overlap in some areas, so the biology and maths will be really helpful for parts of psychology!
    French is a facilitating subject so that is also a good option for a russel group uni, if you will enjoy it and can get a high grade in it.

    These should be fine.

    Short answer: completely fine.

    In this situation you're not at any advantage taking 4 A-levels, so don't.

    (And also, what really are the chances that these aren't good choices? In what universe would an admissions officer look at those and go "nah f*** that"?)

    your choices are definitely good enough!

    psychology, biology and maths are definitely the most interrelated subjects; biology will help with biopsychology whilst maths will help with inferential statistics. a language is highly respected at university, but the link to psychology is not as explicit in comparison to a subject like biology (other than language/second language acquisition).

    psychology, biology and maths seem like the best combination for psychology!
