Hello! I'm an external student. I did AS levels in chemistry and physics and at the moment I'm working towards exams in A2 chemistry, A2 physics and both AS and 2 A 2 maths(doing full a level in one year). I added AS biology on, hurst because I thought it would look good, but I'm finding I spend most of my time on the other three and I'm wondering whether AS biology will just take my time and better grades away from the other three subjects. I was just shy of an A in chemistry and physics at AS so I really want to get am A this time. I've done some mocks for maths and I have had 90%, for core 1, 90% mechanics 1 and 87% for core 2. Currently working on core 3 and mechanics 2.
Any advice would be appreciated!

Depends on what you wanna do some top unis and courses like medicine etc. would want 4 AS levels but the fourth at like a B or C most of the time.

I did A level biology and got a D in it ten years ago, not sure whether that could count, also AS law but it was a grade D also. I'm wondering whether 1 A* and 2As will be enough to get me into a good uni?

im guessing you'll have around 10-12 exams so I would focus on the others until you understand everything then go onto bio so it doesn't affect the others or you could always spread out your revision for all your exams so you perform well in all of them when do you plan to start to revise?

What course do you want to go in to?

Assuming Biology isn't at all relevant to your course, A*AA is more than enough for most universities.
