    I think when choosing A-Levels maybe people should pick some challenging subjects with subjects that come naturally to them. I took Biology, Chemistry and History. History is easy for me- I'm a natural humanities person. Biology was hell I got a U then another U then finally an E on my third retake. Chemistry I also found pretty easy getting a B in my first exam and then because I didn't try at all I ended up with a D. However I liked having to try really hard in something and relax with something else. I would've died if I'd taken Physics instead of History as that wouldve made 3 hard subjects.

    I did Chemistry, Maths, Physics and German, a pretty good combination for keeping options open. Of the four, Chemistry was hardest. German would've been on a par, if not worse, but I went to a German school for three years age 6 so found it easy(ish). Maths def the easiest of the four.

    I agree that you should challenge yourself, but with universities these days they want to see AAA and might not be able to see past a U

    Hi. Has anyone else picked, for their A-Levels, Maths, Further Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics?

    This arguably has to be the hardest combination of A-Level subjects out there, am I right?

    Also i've heard alot about 3 maths A-levels and even 4 maths A-levels!!!
    Anyone doing that?

    Who else considers thier options to be the hardest combination around?

    :tsr:
    i do maths, f.maths, chemistry and physics and find it fairly easy - cause i'm mathematically able

    for me the hardest combination would be: design technology, music, p.e. and something similar
