So here’s the alevels I’m picking - English lit, Psychology and economics, maybe core maths as a 4th.

My grades for maths and science are 5s but I’m on foundation so I cannot do alevel in sciences like chemistry, biology or physics.

Are these good alevels to take for the careers I’d like to go down?

If you have any suggestions please let me know

You can do law and teaching with any subject.
I'm not sure why you would do core maths, I thought that wouldn't be of any use in uni applications?
It really is true that you should choose your favourite subjects, so just do that.

I'd say yes, but also consider Law for an A Level. Even without it you're fine, but it might help with bridging the gap before uni

No-one needs to do Law at A level to do a Law degree.
Please stop giving this 'advice' - its not helpful as many schools/college do not offer A level Law and it is NOT needed.

I’m just thinking of English, Psychology and economics. I’ve heard it doesn’t matter what alevels you do for law as long as you do good in them. English is there as a back up so I could be an English teacher.

I'm not saying that it is needed, but I'm saying that it could help them (sorry unaware of gender pronouns) understand what they're getting into.

But it is tru that the subjects you have are fine, which i mentioned in my previous message but seems to be conveniently cut out of your quote.
