    I was thinking of doing Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Graphic Design (or Art)
    Graphics design was going to be the one I dropped.
    But I'm not so confident in maths- I can take in concepts and do it but it does stress me out and I find it hard to remember formulas a long time after I learn them.
    I love art, and I want to expand my skills. I practice drawing digitally and I love it. I haven't done Graphics or art at GCSE though

    I aim to be a psychologist/psychatrist (not sure which as of yet, likely the latter)
    and have teaching as a backup.
    So now I'm thinking should I drop maths instread of graphics. I know I have quite a long time for me to make the final choice but I want to be sure before I start applying to sixth forms/colleges.

    If you want to be a psychologist or psychiatrist you need Maths, generally speaking. Many universities lock you out of doing it if you don't take it - and honestly you'll want it for Chemistry anyway. Graphic Design doesn't honestly fit in with your other subjects but if you like it go for it - by the end of AS you'll have a better idea of what you want to do. Also consider Psychology instead of Graphic Design at AS at least so that you know you enjoy it!
