    At the moment I'm planning on taking:
    -Maths
    -Chemistry
    -Physics
    -Biology

    I've already got an A* in Maths and I'm almost certain I've got an A* in Physics and Chemistry and then an A in Biology.

    I'm just wondering would this be too much work for me? And also do they compliment each other? AND I'm looking for a career in a chemistry field either chemical engineering or pharmaceutics so would these help me for those university courses?

    Thanks!

    Solid options.

    If you can handle the workload I suggest picking up Further Maths

    No one can tell you what subjects to take, only you can decide that

    You've got the right subjects

    but DON'T take your GCSE results as an indication of how well you'll do at a-level
    Definitely DO NOT do this!

    Only do a subject you WANT to do and will enjoy, not because you're good at it, it will backfire half way through your a-levels and you'll deeply regret it.

    If you love doing them subjects and will have motivation to do it for 2 years then yeah go for it!
