Bearing i'm hoping to study physics at university (i hope Oxford), i just wanted advice on what a levels i should do.
I know i'm going to do maths, further maths and physics because these are the subjects i am interested in and also the ones that Oxford require for physics. However i don't really know what to do for my 4th a level. Does it matter what I choose for the 4th a level because I am interested in doing history a level even though it doesn't really relate to physics.
I thought however that another science like chemistry would help my application for physics.
Does chemistry help when you apply for physics?
Or does it not really matter if i choose history for my 4th a level?

You'd do better choosing a subject that you enjoy, rather than one that you think would 'look good' - especially when you're already taking physics, maths and further maths which will look excellent provided that you get decent grades. The fourth a level is practically irrelevant anyway if you drop it after AS (I say 'practically' because if you get like a U I imagine that Oxford might be concerned).
Chemistry isn't vital for physics anyway, your three main choices are far more important.Last edited by h8skoooooool; 01-11-2015 at 01:12.
