College is starting soon but I’m still not sure if I should be choosing A-levels (psychology, sociology and English Lang) or BTEC health & social care level 3. I want to study psychology for university afterwards but I don’t know which would help me get there: the A-levels or the BTEC health & social care. Which one should I go for?

For the most options available to study psychology at university you would be best taking psychology, biology and one other subject at A level.

A btec health and social care is a good qualification but psychology is an academic degree not a health profession vocational degree.

I’m literally in the same indecisive position of if I do 2 a levels one btec or 3 a levels and maybe an epq
(Same subject options)

At my interview the advisor told me I could still go to uni with 2 a levels one btec but IMO psychology is a competitive course depending on to what extend you want to take your psychology career too

You don't need a science or biology.

Good choices, imho: Psychology, Sociology, Chemistry, Biology or History.

I did Psychology, Chemistry and French
Although you can get away with not doing a science subject like Bio, Chem and Physics or Maths, some Uni's do prefer you to have one of them .
Doing psychology at A-level is pretty useful
