    I am currently studying Chemistry, Biology, Physics & Maths all of which I attained an A at GCSE level. 1 week into college and I'm finding the sciences quite manageable however maths has really caught me off guard due to it being largely algebra based which unfortunately isn't my strong suit.

    My question is if I choose to drop maths, what subject would be best to take in its place? I'm currently considering Geography or Psychology.

    Can't say much about Geography, but I did AS Psychology last year and absolutely loved it! It's also classed as a 'relevant science A2' by some universities and has topics that are relatable and will be useful whichever career you choose.

    Thank you for the quick reply Will look into psychology as it would be quite useful for a medical career.
