I haven't read the other responses here, but I'll offer my advice.
I'm taking AS right now, so I'm a year above you. Granted, I despise science, but I do happen to have two friends who both currently take physics, chemistry and maths, with one friend in further maths and another in biology.
The one in further maths is a mathematical genius. He got an A* in maths GCSE, and he wants to take a physics course at uni. He says he loves further maths and maths, but further maths is indeed very hard. If it's any consolation, he hates english and essay writing with a passion.
The one in biology is pursuing medicine, and as far as I know he took a maths course because he's both good at it and it goes together really wel with the sciences. Once again if any consolation, his second choice after maths was english I believe.
It's up to you, and it depends largely on what you want to do. If you love maths and physics, then I'd suggest further maths. If you like science in general then taking biology would be a good idea.

Ah right, cheers guys. You're probably right. Furhter maths would probably be the best option for me.
But I've got another question. I don't want to go into medicine right now, but what if I change my mind when applying to universities? I know that chemistry is compulsory for medicine, but would biology strengthen the application form of a medicine student? Would a person who took chemistry and biology have a better chance of getting a place at a university than me if I changed my mind and decided to take medicine?

However, I think that's subjective; I'd personally find biology harder than Chemistry and Maths but that's because I'm quite adept when it comes to Maths and Chemistry? meh...

Do further maths, biology is a womens subject,
also if you want to go down a "Maths" route at uni, top universities require atleast AS level further maths, some require the who a level (oxford or cambridge do i think)
