    Hi there,

    Currently in year 11, and have GCSE finals in the summer.

    Here are the grades I will achieve

    CORE Science - A*
    ADDITIONAL SCIENCE - A*-A
    Maths - C (maybe a B)
    English Language - C (maybe B)
    Business - A*A*A*A*
    ICT - BBBB
    Resistant Materials - C
    Personal Development - C (maybe B)

    I am on course to achieve at least A's in both sciences, Distinctions - either A*'s or A's in Business, C's maybe B's in Maths, English and Personal Development and a C is Res Mat.

    For Sixth Form I am definitely going to take Biology and Chemistry.
    The two other subjects will be Maths and/Or Physics.

    My questions are;

    Can I get into the same courses with out maths, taking just bio, chem and physics?
    My initial Plan was to take maths and Drop it after AS level, should i just start with the three sciences?
    Will i be at a disadvantage for only taking 3 A Levels?
    Can i Still get into the majority of Biology Based Science Degrees at University?
    Which Options seems the Best?

    Option 1
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Physics

    Option 2
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Maths

    Option 3
    Biology
    Chemistry
    Physics
    Maths

    Take four AS levels, with the competition you'll have trouble with only three. Really strive for a B in Math and English, most competitive courses require this. I was in a really low set for Math at GCSE, second from bottom, but I managed to achieve a B, and if I can, you can.
