Sorry for making yet another of these threads, but I'm really confused and need some help.
I've started my AS-Levels - currently taking Maths, English Lit, Chemistry, Biology, Physics.
I took these for pure enjoyment, I don't think 5 looks any better than 4etc. However I have since heard that it's better to concentrate on 4, which I'm prepared to do.
I'd like to study a broad-based science course at uni, probably Natural Sciences (or Biochemistry). After that I think I might like to go into science writing (although I realise this will be very competitive) or perhaps research/industry.
I took English Lit because I love to read and Physics because I also love it (I was previously considering Physics at uni).
Could anyone give me some advice on whether I should drop Physics or English Lit? Is there any truth in people saying that unis love 'contrast' subjects (English in my case). Does Biochemistry require essay skills? Or will the strong science background (if I keep Physics) be an advantage? Does Biochemistry have any Physics components?

Hmmm, it's totally up to you. Having a contrasting subject will mean your lessons vary: instead of them just being science based you'll have a contrasting subject and sometimes that's a good thing; however, that said, for what you want to do I suggest doing the Physics?
