I think it does, yeah
You could do things like Law, English, Psychology, Maths, Economics (I would imagine), probably Media as well, at Uni with those. What are you interested in doing at Uni?

Yes. Two sciences, Two humanities.

The most respected A level; i.e Maths.
The better of the two English's
And doing biology and psychology together is great.

It depends what you want to do at university, to an extent. If you are not sure then go ahead with the subjects that you like, those subjects are a diverse mix (with science, maths and arts subjects).

Yeah, those are certainly good choices as they keep your options open to a wide variety of university courses.

Yes, except if you want to Medicine (and related), Chemistry (and related), Physics (and related) and sometimes Maths (which often asks for Further Maths)... but to be honest that keeps your options very open.

Yeah if you swapped Psychology for Chemistry then your options really would be open - you could do Medicine etc. But even at the moment its quite open.

well without maths you are maybe a little more limited but at the same time there are still a number of courses you could do
and doing a languauge is always good

Well as someone already pointed out, few subjects actually require specific subjects beyond the subject itself, e.g. biology for a biology degree so you can do pretty much anything except maths/physics e.t.c. with those subjects I would imagine... look it up if you are unsure. Without sounding critical, it appears as though your priorities may be wrong with regards chosing a degree, chose something because you think you will be good at it and enjoy it rather than because it is 'respected', any traditional degree will stand you in good stead for employment as will many arts ones for more specialised career paths.
