Urgent help needed!!! Further Maths or Chemistry for A-levels? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    In university, I am planning to do computer science simply because I enjoy it. Or do economics if I somehow change my mind. Therefore, I picked Maths Mechanics, Chemistry, Physics and economics of course. But few of my friends recommend me to do Further maths as it links to my Uni degrees but I believe it is too hard. I got an A for my GCSE maths which was done in November and predicted an A* for the June one. I'm also predicted an A for my GCSE further maths. So I do enjoy maths. But im also very interested in Chemistry and predicted an A* for double science.

    In other words. Should I pick chemistry or Further Maths. Which is harder in general and which is more worthy for top uni's ?

    If you're intending to do Computer Science, Further Maths without a doubt. I'm not entirely sure you completely understand what Computer Science is. Computer Science is a branch of mathematics. If you're serious about Computer Science, you should be taking as much maths as possible.

    You need to check the actual admissions requirements for the courses you are interested in at a range of different Unis, both A level subjects and grades.

    Also remember that you could do a combined subject degree - St Andrews or Aberystwyth both offer Computer Science and Economics, or Aston, Brighton and Brunel offer Business Computing as a named degree.
