    Hi there!

    So, I want to do Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Economics however Chemistry and Maths clash on my school's timetable meaning I would have to switch Economics unless I'm able to hassle them enough to change it. My options to switch to are Physics or Further Maths. Physics I don't particularly enjoy but am very good at. Maths just seems to click with me but again not a subject I particularly enjoy.

    Opinion guys?

    Hi . I took maths, further maths, chemistry and physics.
    I completely sympathise with you there, I wanted to take computing instead of further maths but unfortunately that clashed with chemistry
    i would say, definitely don't take further maths unless you genuinely enjoy maths
    Physics isn't too bad it's actually my easiest subject ATM, so if you do have to pick one, I would recommend physics.
    There is no harm asking though, you never know, if there are a lot of people who want to do the same as you they may change it!
    (They almost did this at my school, we would have needed 10 people in the class to make this change, but unfortunately we only had 9- how unfair!)
    Anyways good luck

    So people at your school can't take Chemistry and Maths together? That sounds really weird to me, the majority of people who are doing Chemistry do Maths as well, it's a pretty popular combination. I'm sure there's quite a few other people at your school who also want to take both Maths and Chemistry? You should definitely try and get them to change it.

    Its not maths that's clashing it's Economics, it's just a choice between switching economics for with further maths or physics

    Thanks for you opinions guys!

    If you're doing well at physics at GCSE then you should be able to do well at A Level but I find it's the hardest of my subjects as there's definitely a noticeable jump between GCSE and A Level.

    Ah.

    If it were me, I'd go with Further Maths - if you're good at maths, maths+fm becomes like 1.5 A-levels rather than 2. Best case scenario, your workload is significantly reduced. Worst case scenario, you drop it after AS (AS Further Maths is only slightly harder than AS Maths really, A2 is where it actually gets difficult).
