Could you please tell me if it would be wise to take Chemistry A-level (perhaps swap it with one of the others) to show my love of science?
Your help is appreciated.
Sorry for taking your time.

US schools don't mind if you study other things. The religion or whatever won't hurt you, although it isn't taught at all in state high schools in the US. In the US you have to study a lot of English, foreign language, and history in high school, and it is considered good to be well rounded.
If you are applying to MIT, you should probably also apply to Caltech. The schools are fairly similar, although Caltech is twice as far away. It is hard to know how US schools make admissions decisions, and most people apply to many schools.
MIT is extremely intense and you will be studying all the time.
I don't see the reason to go there over Oxbridge. It doesn't have medieval buildings or a tutorial system. Plus, there are issues about fees.
