Hello! My degree is in Sociology and my masters is in Psychology.

A lot of students who study the social sciences typically go to work in the public sector; teaching, social work, psychiatry etc. Each one has a variety of challenges.

Firstly, the market for Psychology graduates is very saturated and to be a registered psychologist you need to have done a doctorate in this area. For my social science students I typically recommend doing some sort of post graduate certificate or masters afterwards which specialises you in an industry - I went into teaching. There tends to be steady work for people who can teach Psychology. If you wanted to do social work you could do a degree in it, or, there are various opportunities to fast track into it if you have done a social science type subject at degree level (its my back up plan if I loose my job).

If you were interested in nursing like another poster suggested, it might be best replacing one of the social science subjects with another science like chemistry. I teach on a Nursing Access to HE pathway and students typically do two sciences and one social science

I'm sure you will do great! Make time to enjoy studying too! I loved college

They definitely suit each other. Doing biology will probably make the biopsychology chapter (AQA) in psychology easier and more enjoyable. I've just finished year 13 and did psychology and sociology (AQA). The fact that both have a large proportion of the course being made up of research methods, with very very similar content being covered, you will overall have less content to revise
Hope this helps
