i am taking biology, chemistry, psychology right now in year 12. i wanted to keep all my options open so i took those three options. As i don't particularly like my teacher and i don't find taking biology is useful because i don't want to go into medicine, i'm thinking of dropping it and doing geography instead. Instead, I want to keep chemistry as i think it opens most doors and pathways especially with the healthcare route. Does geography, chemistry, psychology work well together?

If you're interested in healthcare you'll still need biology - many healthcare areas such as nursing & physiotherapy require knowledge of biology / anatomy. Geography is useful if you want to do something related to the climate, or if you want to become a town planner. Also, having done Biology, Chemistry & Psychology at A-level, Chemistry is the hardest so If I were in your shoes I'd switch Chemistry for Geography. Hope that helps 😊.

dont rely on your teachers for alevels, so long as you have the textbook youre fine
keeping biology would be sensible if you want to go into healthcare

It's just that my biology teacher is not encouraging at all and she wants me to drop it because she thinks i can't do the subject whereas on the other hand, my chemistry teachers are encouraging and very helpful. i'm unsure about my future and i wanted to keep my options as open as possible so i thought that if i work hard and perceiver with chemistry i'd get the most out of it. i'm just so stressed about this decision..

Is there any chance you could get moved to a biology class with a different teacher? The head of biology or science should be able to arrange it. It's very sensible to keep your options open if you don't know what to you want to be yet. My only other suggestion would be to possibly swap Psychology for Geography if you've got a good chemistry teacher. I've got a friend who did a psychology degree despite not doing it at A-level. Also, as long as you learn the whole syllabus for biology you should do well - why not prove your teacher wrong? (exceeding the expectations of teachers is a great feeling) 😊
