Why so much though you will have such a large workload? And what are you looking to do in the future?

Haha you don't need maths at all, only do it if you enjoy it and know you can do well on it.

You would only need maths if you want a numerical subject like physics/engineering or economics at a top uni

Maths will be useful for any STEM degree.

I suggest Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Psychology.

And then do sports in your own time

Like anything science related, engineering, Maths

Lots of stats in Biology, so perhaps just a Maths AS with S1?

Problem is A-Levels are changing next year?


Some are becoming linear so

Biology,Chemistry,Psychology no AS or A2 but Maths will be still AS and A2....

Yeah some are linear from 2015 then more from 2016 and then ALL of them will be by 2017.


AS will be around but a standalone qualification. Won't count toward your a level final grade or uni at all
