Universities of the type you mention tend to want to see three A2s being taken in the same year to demonstrate that you have the ability to handle the workload, so no, I don't think it's a good plan.

I don't see another way, unless i do Further Maths in a year and drop Chemistry all together. I know i'll need to highlight my reasons for a third year in my Personal Statement

Take your current three into A2 and do AS FM at the same time. I'd contact your university choices and take their advice, but tbh I don't think your plan is feasible.

You'd better discuss your options with your school and ask a selection of universities what they want.

I could have gotten an A in Psychology but i wanted to ensure an A in Physics instead. I think i will do well in a Maths degree, also considering a masters if i get a first.

How about dropping Psychology, doing only AS Chemistry in your A2 year, and taking a gap year and dedicating that to Further Maths?

Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (627)
41.25%
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (311)
20.46%
I think there is a better option than the ones suggested (let us know in the thread!) (69)
