    im in a bit of a life dilemma here...i just sat for my semester 1 A LEVELS exam and i didn't do very well in further maths...i want to be a chemical engineer in the future and im currently taking four a levels subject which is chemistry,physics,maths and further maths i initially took further maths because i thought it would give me an advantage over the other applicants to go to a university but now im not so sure if i can do it..should i drop it and take a subject like biology or should i drop it all together and just continue with 3 a levels subject, but then would this put me at a disadvantage over everybody else???

    If you can do physics and maths, further maths is perfectly fine. Just dedicate time to it and do past papers. For your career, f maths would be more valued than biology.

    If you're in A2, it's still perfectly fine doing 3 a levels
