    If you're applying to universities after a-level then it's best to google some preferred unis and see what subjects they recommend you take/ they want students to have taken at a-level as entry requirements, some are likely to be similar others may require specific subjects I hope this helps

    Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computing are ideal A-Levels. If you can't take these another science would be good.

    Look here:

    I'd replace D+T with Physics or Further Maths if possible, and choose Biology over Sociology.

    Most Top Universities say Maths is no.1 priority and some do point out that further maths is good to have. If I don't have the subjects you recommended am I less likely to receive an offer?

    Also Thank you I will switch to Bio. I'm ass at physics and further maths I cant do because I didn't get an A* in Maths GCSE

    Depends, having Maths is the most important thing for all universities. If you apply for a top university not having at least AS Further Maths is going to lower your chances but with a strong application (AS grades, personal statement, interview, etc.) it would not stop you. The ideal candidate would have at least AS Further Maths so if you think you could handle self-teaching the AS part it might be something you want to do, but it wont stop you.
