What other 'A' levels could I take with it?


• Well, almost anything. Psychology complements most other subjects because it has elements of Arts, Humanities and the Sciences in it.

• But of the 'A' levels studied here, Sociology, Science for Public Understanding, Biology and English are particularly suited.
