Hi, I really need some advice because the internet/school aren't being very helpful. Basically I'm currently doing my A2s. I haven't applied to uni yet because I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but now I'm pretty sure I want to do something biology related. Unfortunately most universities want 2 sciences - I only have an A level in Biology. I'm on good stead for getting an A in it, but I ideally need two and I didn't do well in my chemistry AS level, I got an E even with working hard. Is it possible to do an extra science in a year? and is it worth retrying chemistry in a year? I read that it's something incredibly hard and I really don't know what to do. I do two other essay subjects and so psychology is something I'm wary of.

Any advice or ideas would be great. Thanks

I wouldn't try chemistry in a year - its hard and if you struggled at AS then it is putting a lot of pressure on yourself. How is your maths? That's an easy-ish A-level to do in a year - no practicals so it is easy to study independently and enter the exam as a private candidate and with lots of practice most people can get good grades.

Heh, my maths is awful. I really struggled at GCSE to get a B which I think is why I struggled with Chemistry at A-level because there is a lot of understanding of mathematical equations. I've been leaning more towards psychology, but I've not really heard of anyone trying to do it in a year .
