    Hello guys,
    i am really confused about my A level options. I've posted a few threads and gotten some great responses, but I need to know what to choose for my intended degree options. Basically, I know that I want to study either Chemistry or Law at university. I love them both equally, and having a tough time choosing. I'm going to definitely be doing: Biology, Chemistry and Maths A levels. It's just for my fourth, I don't know if I should do Physics or History? I love History more then Physics, but have really good predicted grades in both. I know that if I do decide to do Chemistry, then having Physics would be very beneficial. The only thing is though, I don't enjoy it that much, and I would hate to do another A level with tons of maths. History would look great if I went for law, because it's an essay based subject. Since I'm already doing 3 Science/ maths, would it make much difference? Honestly, the Physics course looks scary. I feel like you would have to be a genius to understand it. I want to apply to Oxford/Imperial/UCL/Durham/Manchester when I'm older if that helps. Thank you for any help

    I doubt Physics would be so beneficial to you that it's worth taking over History. If you prefer History as a subject, take it. It'll also be good essay practise if you choose to go into Law
