    What do you want to do in Uni? That would be my first priority, see what is needed and decide the courses based on that!

    It really depends on what you want to do at Uni etc, i suppose as you've chosen chemistry and physics, something like maths is favourable as it opens a lot of doors, however i understand i can be to much to handle. first i propose that you get an idea on what you want to do in life. for example dentistry requires two sciences which you already have so that is sufficient, so you could choose something like history or geography and it wouldnt be a problem. i would suggest then subjects like psychology or sociology or r.e

    I personally recommend an A-level in Bengali. Based upon your current options and GCSES, it seems like the best bet!


    In all honesty though, looking at your consistent GCSE grades, I would defo choose maths, then maybe a softer, essay-like related subject you could find fun like geography or psycology.

    If you're doing physics, you are going to find it really hard without maths, there was one person in my physics class who didn't do maths and he got an E/U. Maths also helps a lot with chemistry

    To be honest, it depends what you want to do in university. However, if you're still unsure at the moment, if I was you, I would pick maths and at least two science subjects. By doing this, you will open many courses for you in the future when it's time for you to go to university. Also, because you are entitled to pick at least four A-levels, if the three of them are maths and two science subjects, that leaves you with another option to make and if you want you can pick a subject you truly enjoy.
