    I am deciding to take maths and chemistry but not sure between biology/physics and history/further maths. What do u think?

    I would go for physics and further maths, since the course contains a lot of maths and physics. Studying further pure modules will be helpful since some topics you will study at A Level will come up in the degree making the transition slightly easier. Maths, Further Maths, Chem and Physics is the best preparation for the course and generally a combination favoured upon.

    I agree with the above poster but I would say that Further Maths isn't necessary, if you did History then it might be a nice break from your other subjects. It also gives you more options later if you decide Chemical Engineering isn't for you, as it shows you can do essay-bsaed stuff as well as science.

    Good luck! Choose whichever subjects you feel like you'd enjoy more - if you don't really like history but find maths very interesting then obviously further maths is a better subject to take. On the other hand, if you're very interested in history then it would definitely not be a "waste" subject and entry requirements for Chemical Engineering don't include further maths.

    Id do physics and further maths

    Physics and maths both relevant to your course.

    I applied for Chem Eng this year. My UCL offer speaks of physics. Though Biology also gives you another perspective as a Chemical Engineer. I do Maths, Bio, Chem and Phys.
