    Hey guys,
    I'm in the process of choosing my A levels, and need your thoughts on this combination. I want to go on to do a Marine Operations/Nautical Science/Marine Studies degree in the future.
    I'm thinking of choosing:
    Maths,
    Physics,
    Biology,
    Geography.
    I've spoken to my school and seem to think that the subjects are all too similar, although these are what i enjoy, and there are no specific A level requirements for the courses.
    What are your thoughts, do i need to broaden my range of subjects more?

    If they're what you enjoy, then go ahead.

    I know loads of people who did maths, further maths, physics and chemistry -the 4 most similar subjects in the world - and it doesn't matter because it's what they enjoy and they know how they'll use them in the future.

    I can see how your A Levels would relate to your University course, and if you're sure that's what you want to do, then you have no reason to try and broaden the range.

    You have picked quite heavy subjects but if you can cope with them then it's your choice not the schools.

    They sound fine and really suit what you'd like to do.

    I'd recommend chemistry instead of biology, I did both and loved chemistry, found it challenging but fun and worthwhile. Biology is ok but really easy tbh, conceptually it's a doddle and the exam only really tests you're ability to word answers well.

    It seems a fine combination, I don't think you should broaden your choice providing you're confident with those subjects.

    If you're looking to go into marine/nautical industry/business, economics is always an impressive A level to have and goes with maths and geography?

    It seems late in the year to be choosing options too?
