Hi Holly! To become a psychologist you would need to complete a Bachelor's degree is Psychology, this is typically a three year degree. Your best bet is to have a look at the different universities which offer this degree and have a look at their requirements. Most require at least one of Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics or Psychology and so you should be sure to take subjects which meet this requirement. Taking Psychology at A-level would give you a good foundation of what you may study at university so I would definitely recommend this. As for the other subjects, take what you are interested in and just make sure it meets the requirements of the universities you would want to apply for in the future :) If you need any more clarification feel free to ask another question!
