    I was planning on taking Physics, Maths/Further Maths - depending on my results - and then I thought Chemistry. But chemistry is really my weak point and I doubt I would cope with A level Chemistry.

    So does anyone know of any alternative options that would still be beneficial?

    well further maths , maths and physics are three a levels anyway (check with ur sixth form some only do further maths as an AS only )
    I would leave it at that
    Chemistry isn't required ur best option is to just pick something u find easy for a fourth option

    Some unis mention Design Technology but you've named the crucial A levels.

    Maybe a language, if you fancy astronautics/aeronautics or want to do a year abroad. As you already have the three core A Levels, I would really just take, what you enjoy and if that is Classics, then just go for it.

    That's all you need. Chemistry would compliment those subjects well as a fourth AS but you do not need it and if you think it's a weak point, don't take it. You can take whatever you want as your fourth choice.

    I'm applying for mechanical engineering this year and I took Maths, Further Maths, Physics and German! You named the most important 3; the fourth can be a nice contrast, something you want to do for fun!
