Starting college September 2010. I've applied to colleges and I'm definitely taking Bio, Chem and Maths as I'm hoping for a science career, most probably somewhere in Pharmacy.
I'm wondering what I should take for my fourth A-Level. I don't want something too difficult or with a heavy workload as I'll be concentrating mostly on the other three.
I'll be expecting 9 A-A* grades for GCSE in English Lang and Lit, Maths, 360 Science Core and Additional, ICT short course, Geography, RE and Arabic.
Course options are:
English Lang and Lit
Any advice appreciated

I would recommend Physics, you take science subjects Physics just overlaps so should be perfect for you.
English Lit - probably the most respected of the rest and would show a real good contrast to your chosen subjects.

you might want to consider a essay based subject...
but then if you have already decided what you want to do...
why not further maths?
sorry, i realise that this post can't have helped...

for AS i took bio, chem, maths, and physics, and really regret taking physics instead of different subject, just because it seemed like the logical choice to make. Looking back, i think i would have take history/geog/german instead of phys..
sooo in my opinion, you should chose an arts/humanities subject, just to give your subjects a bit of diversity.. obviously we can't choos for you, cos we don't know what subjects you do and don't enjoy.. so first of all, try whittling down the list and turn it into your top 5 or so subjects, then take a look at the a level specs for those subjects, and choose the one you'll enjoy doing the most

Physics might be sensible, or you could go for something totally different like English Lit, History or French - which are also very well respected!

You could do whatever really.
Physics to "fit" or like History or English or French to show you have more than just sciency/analytical skillz

Go for either English Lit (if you are good it ) , Economics , Geography or History.

You could do anything! People I know take that combo and have Economics, Physics or Geography as their 4th. You can pick anything you like
