my AS results are:

Geography - A
Economics - A
Biology - A
Maths - B (1 Ums off an A)

I want to go into Biological Science for university, however, I'm not sure which of these 4 subjects i should drop for A2. i would greatly appreciate it if someone could advise me?

For Biological Sciences, I would definitely continue with Biology and Maths. Then drop either between Geography or Economics.

Definitely drop either geography or economics as both maths and biology are normally subject requirements. Chose which one you like the least, however, I would say geography is probably slightly more relevant.

biological sciences at nearly every uni I want to apply at has entry requirements of AAA. I personally don't beleive I can achieve an A at maths as i struggled a lot with maths last year. Are you sure the course requires maths?

University websites > every other source of info

If your desired place says their only requirement is Biology, then go for it.

Maths is not normally specified, however, most universities require 2 maths/science courses to A2. But definitely check because every course is different.

EDIT: Some places may take geography but don't take my word for it check the university websites for the entry requirements. However, maths is more universally accepted.
