Hi, I’m not sure which combination of A-levels to do. My choices are Economics, English language, Psychology or Politics, or whether to just do all four!

personally i don't think theres much point in doing 4 a-levels as unis only want you to have 3, and if you do 4 you'll have less time for each subject and are less likely to secure the grades you want if you're not good at managing your time.
remember that AAA is much better than ABB(B) in the eyes of universities

but if you genuinely love all 4 subjects and think you'll be fine balancing time then go for it - you can always drop a subject later on if you need to!

psychology is the only subject i study out of the ones you've listed, and i honestly love it (it's not too much work either lol, although there's quite a bit of content)

You can always drop a subject after the first year if you feel you cannot manage the studying or you are not enjoying a particular one. Speaking from experience, I would also recommend choosing at least one subject that you think you will definitely enjoy studying/ are interested in. Often universities are not bothered about the particular subject of all 3/4 A-levels, they may just ask for a specific one for some degrees.
