I am planning to study maths, further maths and physics with history, only AS for a-levels in next September.
Are there perhaps assessments I can take to see my suitability for my subject choices?
or can you think of other ways to see if you have chosen the most suitable subject choices for yourself, besides from looking just the GCSE grades and your enjoyment of them?

Choose what you are interested in and what you'll do well in.

I never actually based any of my A-Level choices on my GCSEs. A-Levels are a class above (literally).

I chose Psychology, Maths, Geography and Computing.

2 of those (Geography and Psychology), I never did at GCSE but I found it very interesting and though I could do well. I got Bs so I guess it paid off

try answering some AS Level Maths questions; half the first AS Level Maths paper assesses GCSE level content. if you want something more challenging, teach yourself C1 differentiation, integration and sequences (use examsolutions: http://www.examsolutions.net/maths-r.../C1/module.php) then try this paper: http://madasmaths.com/archive/iygb_p...apers/c1_u.pdf
