    Ne t year I will hopefully take, English (lit), politics or classics, biology or chemistry and maths

    I don't want to do things that are too coursework heavy, I want to do subjects that I can do well in with hard work but still allow me spare time (so not too full on) and are interesting. I'm not super confident with maths but I'm a solid A, what do you think about this combination? Any experiences with these subjects? Tips or other subject suggestions?

    Eng lit in my opinion takes a lot of time, because you have to read a bunch of books dont you?
    biology apparently has a lot of memorisation to do because there's a lot of content. chemistry apparently is hardest a level out there!!!!

    maths a level tbh is hard and GCSE maths no way reflects maths a levels, i say this because i did a step up course for it and even at C1 which everyone finds fairly easy, i find it things like differientation so only take maths if you're absolutely in love with it. i got A* at gcse maths but will not take it as i find it difficult :s

    i got no experience on the other two but i'll be taking gov+politics which apparently is different to politics somehow?

    but if i were to combine your choices i would pick Literature, politics, chemistry and maths. if you're only taking 3 then drop chemistry.
