    this is a prime example. You probably couldn't do astrophysics without maths.
    You can, my best mates sister got into an astrophysics degree and cardiff uni without maths A level.

    I just want to tell you, it's not such a good idea to do physics unless you do a-level maths.. because i've found physics without maths doesn't get you very far. JMO.
    Hmmm i know other people seem to manage and get relatively ok-good grades. We'll see. Biology still seems liek the one i'll do at the moment.

    No I meant for university courses which require physics, they usually ask for maths.. eg to study physics you need maths and physics. Unless there's some 'exceptional circumstances' as they usually put it. Plus, physics at degree level is like 70% maths isn't it or something?! lol
    Biology is good though, have you considered doing chemistry as well?

    Yeah i have, seems to intense and i never really like chemistry though. The only topic i'd really enjoy would be the bonding and reactions module. Im also thinking whether i should do 2 sciences (bio and chem) be a lot of work though.

    Personally I think the workload in science subjects is easier to manage than the humanities and written subjects like history or english or psycology for example, because in those you have to write essays every week and the written work mounts up, whereas in science you learn the modules bit by bit and learn the facts. Chemistry isn't that hard, you just have to learn the facts and regurgitate them in the exam, so don't let it put you off. Do you know what exam board you'd be doing?
    What i'm getting at is usually biology related courses require chemistry and they compliment each other as well.
