    Has anyone done this combination of Alevels and could give me some tips and advice as well as what you found easy and difficult about the combination and whether they worked well together?

    The combination is geography, Chemistry, biology and english literature plus EPQ and silver DofE.

    I've not taken that combination. Whether or not it works well depends on what you want to do post-A Levels though. There's nothing inherently wrong with it though.

    Okay, I wanted to keep my options open because I don't know what I want to do in the future and hoped this combination would keep lots of uni courses open.

    It might be a good idea to start researching properly then. Those choices will keep a number of options open to you, but it's not as good as taking a focused selection of subjects.

    I took the same combination except history instead of geography and felt it kept a lot of options open I think it's a great combination

    I did geography and English lit, surprisingly they work quite well. I have a friend doing geography with chemistry and biology and he pretty much walks geography because so much of the sciencey stuff is covered in the other two, the only thing he has to remember is case studies.

    What Chlorophile said, you really should be researching for some courses that you would like to study at university now. For example if you, for some reason, wanted to study Chemistry at university there is a chance where you would need maths at A2 standard. However, there isn't anything to criticize, just a little bit of advice before you firm those A levels.

    Yeah I found they linked well at GCSE, lots of the geography spec was also covered in chemistry and biology, and then the human geography side of things helped with the ethics in science. I just really enjoy English lit and was hoping I could find some sort of connection with my other 3 subjects. I have to wait until results day anyway before I know I can take 4 as I need an APS of 50+
