I'm undecided about what to take for A levels...
Currently, i am planning on taking:
Maths
Further Maths
Chemistry
Physics.

How hard are these subjects? Would you advise me to take them?

Thanks

Sounds very maths-based. I'd change either further maths or physics, unless the course you're aiming for requires them.
They're all good, strong subjects though.

I know at least 3 people taking these exact options. They find it pretty easy and don't have much work to do, but that's because they have natural talent for these subjects.

If you find these subjects easy then it'll actually be a breeze (I'm jealous of how much free time they seem to have :p: ) but if you struggle with them now or just scrape by you're struggle immensely.

You could change one to add more variety. Say, take a language, History or English Lit? But if you enjoy Maths/science based subjects then they're very good and well respected

We are doing exactly same subjects lol

AS year as ok, but this year they have ridiculous amount of workloads which I'm now struggling . It's probably because I have been so lazy though haha.

If you find maths easy, then the other two subjects shouldn't be a problem in my opinion. But I'd suggest to switch one (chemistry seems least related to other 3, and not help you much) to something like Economics, English, Psychology or Geography.

We are hardly in a good position to advise you on which subjects to take. Which subjects are good for you depends on you! Do you not have the opportunity to speak to a teacher at your school about your options - one who knows more about you than we do?
