Too much overlap between thescience subjects watch

    • Thread Starter

    Do you agree with this?

    Maths A level= physics A level.
    Maths has a large role in both chemistry and biology. However, it could be argued the maths is unavoidable.

    But still, biochemistry is another example of overlap without maths.
    Should people with all science + maths subjects be treated the same as those who do further maths?

    And how is that too much overlap? If you can't apply those skills from other sciences - most of which is GCSE level, except for using log stuff in Chemistry and even then it's only AS level being one of the easiet topics on C2 - then you shouldn't do any sciences altogether.

    I'm on course for 4 A's actually [3 science+ english], I just think it is unfair that doing another subject would give you such a large advantage.

    Further maths is just proof that you can think in more complex ways.
