    Go to the grammar school.

    Also for your 4th choice, chemistry would complement biology and they are all well respected a levels.

    Choose the grammar school. If you do Lit and Lang as one subject, then you have space for a fourth subject. General Studies is useless in my opinion. Do a few course searches on UCAS and if you look at entry requirements you'll see that General Studies usually isn't taken into consideration, and you might feel like it's wasting your time. Sixth forms are limiting because they usually make you choose subjects from blocks because they've already planned the teacher timetables, so maybe consider going to a college if you want more options. Psychology, Physics or Chemistry would all go well with Biology and Maths.

    Which option I should pick for the 4th AS level for the first one, and also whether I should go to my school or the grammar. I am freaking out as we speak.

    Grammar school sixths form are likely to be more strict but this honestly does help in the long run and maintains focus during your studies. Chemistry up to AS level isn't that bad, you just need a good memory and decent exam technique. You should weigh up the pro's and con's of each sixth form to see which one will work for you.
