    Hello, I am currently studying for As is biology, chemistry, maths and physics. I am predicted A's and got A's in biology (86%), maths (92%) and Physics (91%) in January. I also got one mark off an A in chemistry (79%). I'm in year 12. I'm alsp doing an EPQ in lean manufacturing over the summer.

    But here's my problem; I am set on doing engineering at uni, so maths and physics are important. I was wondering if it is better to do:

    -chem, phy and maths to A2, with nothing else.
    -chem, phy and math to A2, with further maths at AS (taught with limited help)
    -chem, phy, math and bio to A2

    I'm really wanting to get at least 3 A's at A2 (ideally an A* in maths), but was wondering which route is the best, and if further maths is worth the effort, or is it better to do bio at A2, or neither, and concentrate on just the 3.

    Thank for replies.
