    Nice, I want to do biology chemistry physics maths and further maths, but instead I'm dropping biology and doing further maths instead
    That sounds good!! Have you talked to your teachers to find out what you learn on the A Level course tho (for example my friend wanted to take Physics A Level because she liked space but when talking to her teacher she found out there wasn't a lot to do with space and dropped it) xx
    Hope you manage to do all the ones you want xx

    Okay well see which topics you don't like that you've studied for GCSE and that could help you make your descision if one subject has a lot that you didn't like on the spec xx

    For next year I hope to do Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths. The problem is I also want to do further maths and I don't really want to drop the other three what do I do?
    You could do Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths for the first year and gain an AS Level in Biology, then drop it and pick up Further Maths

    Then you should probably choose that if you're interested. If you have the spec for the other subjects you could compare what you don't like and make the right descision or just go on which grades you get.
    For example I can't do a subject I don't get an A or A* in for GCSE so if I don't get that I can't do the subject xx

    Currently busy with Additional Mathematics at IGCSE, which covers some A-Level Maths which will give me a bit of a head start when I do commence with my A-Levels.

    It does seem like you've decided to take Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry, which I can totally appreciate because that's what I do (I'm Year 12)
    I would just add that if you have an interest in biology there's nothing to stop you pursuing the parts you enjoy, in fact many people say that's the best way to appreciate science, as opposed to studying a fixed curriculum.
    Saying all this, Further Maths is easier to self teach than Biology, a friend of mine has done just that (I can't confirm that he's done it well, we'll have to see what grade he comes out with)

    aqa... I didn't think it was awful, but it wasn't great. I was disappointed by how little there was on sub atomic particles and stuff
