    I am in my last year before sixth form and I am set with my career path, ideally finance or to be more specific accounting. I look to be eligible for a KPMG sponsored degree but that will require hard work. Against the norm of many schools next year my school will stick to the old system(as and a2= full a level). I want to take further maths(edexcel) and economics (aqa) which equal three a levels.however i need a fourth for as(pretty much mandatory as a fail in one subject when I am doing three could result in my place being at risk, so if I have four I am safer as I can just drop it) and hopefully a2 to stand out from the crowd the options left are bio,chem, law and IT. But the question is which subject, I here physics is the hardest and chemistry and further maths, but to me that is just weak will, you can do anything if you work for it. I can't take physics as it clashes with economics. So I might need to do it privately. But the question is should I ? Or shall I self study something else?And don't forget a I still need a fourth AS in school and if it goes well I will keep it, and I will try and study physics at home as a science is always good in A level. The obvious problems will arise with regards to ISA's but I will fix that later let me know about your experiences with self studying a science
