    So, what is everyone in Year 11 planning to take next year?

    I will talk either of the following two :

    Physics, Maths, Further Maths, Economics
    Physics, Maths, Further Maths, Chemistry


    If I think I can handle it then I might do 5 AS levels and cut down to 4 in A2. Only time will tell.

    Maths + Further, Physics, Japanese, Music.

    Expecting to see lots of enthusiastic future music students, I haven't come across many so far.

    Edit: WHY IS NO-ONE DOING MUSIC?

    That's pretty cool dude. I heard Japanese is a pretty difficult language. Are you a native?

    I love the Further Maths syllabus. It's so interesting and I need to do M3 if I want to do Physical Sciences at NatSci in Cambridge.

    I'm not sure tbh. The music is more of a relaxing thing because all my lessons being sciency will kill me. :lolwut:

    And music is only for 5 lessons a fortnight.

    What would your fifth subject be?

    Economics or Chemistry. Depends which one of those I take as a 4th haha. I'll have to self-study either one of those and Further Maths. Bye bye weekday evenings.

    So you will only learn 4 at school?

    Choose Chemistry as your fourth then because it is considered the hardest Science.
