    If you want to do something maths related at university (e.g. engineering, computer science, economics, physics or maths) then I would recommend choosing further maths and dropping either biology or chemistry (although chemistry is also useful if you want to do physics or some engineering courses). So probably biology is the best one to drop. If you enjoy maths, are fairly good at it and want to study something maths related, definitely choose further maths over biology.
    Thanks! Really helpful!

    Pick your favourite four and do those. No-one cares whether you have 5 A-Levels.

    Biology is The easiest science, that a reason to keep it, since the others are a ton harder and youll have 4 really hard subjects to do at once, without BIO. BIO has little homework and is pretty easy to understand and revise.though, loved BIO as Maths and chem were a pain and so boring/ time consuming.
    i had a friend who did all the 5 you wanted and he dropped Bio, after 2 months, as he didn't have a use for it, And he found doing all 5 + extra after school lesson really hard to do, F.Maths makes A-level a lot harder.

    Also Maths is a really hard A-level, maths and sciences are honestly the hardest A-level choices to do, and ive seen many smart people fail due to do maths and sciences. You'll really need to be ready to revise a lot and put a lot of effort into it, since Maths +F.maths take a ton of time to understand, Chem and physics are pretty hard and they always screw you in the exams. Good luck to you, i dont know many people who are/were able to do full on science and maths.

    Cover all of maths and further maths in the summer holidays. You won't regret it and it's easily doable. This would be my best advice of you want to do maths and FM.

    I swear it's invaluable. Even if you did 5 subjects you would basically reduce it down to 3 (sort of).

    Won't your school allow you to take 5? Talk to your head or year or the head of sixth form etc they might tell you that you can do it if you get certain grades (to do my 5 A Levels I have to get 9A*s) xxx
    I already asked they said no. 9A*'s?!?! That's impossible!!

    You should ask your school they might let you. I have to get 9A*s to do 5 A Levels but try to think about what you might do in the future and that could help narrow it down
    Or speak to your careers advisor at school xx
    Ok thanks! What a levels do you want to do?
