    I am a student currently in Year 11 and for my A-Levels, I want to choose:
    * Mathematics (maybe)
    * Economics
    * Biology
    (and either Chemistry or Psychology)

    It may sound silly, but I'm not quite sure which what I want to be in the future, yet. With these subjects, what are my options.

    I hated Science throughout the whole of Secondary School and always received low levels until Year 11 when I started to take an interest in Science. For my mock Chemistry exam; I got an A*. However, I've heard that Chemistry is a hard-A level. Should I take it? And do you need Mathematics in order to study Science at uni?

    Additionally, A-levels are changing for the 2015 students, how would that work?:confused:

    Thanks in advance.

    * if you want to go into any Economics degree you'll need Maths
    * if you want to go into any Chemistry degree you'll need Maths
    * if you want to go into any Biology degree you'll need Chemistry (most of the time)

    Take : Economics/Biology/Chemistry/Maths and you'll have a lot of options open to you. Including medicine.

    Chemistry is great!! I did the three sciences and maths at AS and dropped physics for A2 (which I'm currently doing A2) and chemistry is my favourite subject by far! If you want to do any sort of science subject, maths will help a lot and doing atleast two sciences will also help. A lot of unis seem to decrease an offer by a grade if you're doing two sciences/maths rather than just the one. If you're looking for a science degree I mean If you're not looking for a science degree then the sciences and maths are great a levels because they show you can be logical, handle data and analyse data efficiently
