    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

    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!
