Hi,
I know for certain that I will be choosing biology and chemistry as I really like them and know they'd open many doors for me.

However...
I'm not sure about the other two, I have already applied to colleges with the a levels bio, chem, english lit and spanish.

I'm scared english lit would be too much for me.
I do really enjoy reading but I like to read trilogies but not books like harry potter (never liked it). I do like a range of books however I dont think compared to other students wanting to study the a level I have read enough books. I LOVE the analysis and anything that's analysed makes any book interesting.

I heard bio will have a lot of content and chemistry well I think I can handle it if I handle my time well.

Deep at the back of my mind I don't see the point of studying spanish as I think I'll just forget it in a few years time. Although french helps and I can remember vocabulary very easily in spanish and I have seen the as papers and they aren't too bad. I was thinking choose an easier subject to have a breather and a good balance. But I love computer science and technology etc, but I have come to thw point of hating maths. I understand it etc but its just an annoying subject for me, full of numbers...bleurgh.

I'm doint CS gcse now and I dont know if I should swap the a levels?

I'd say if you're that interested in literature definitely take english lit. I do English lit and although it's challenging i do really enjoy it. There is a lot of reading involved but not as much as i expected so far, and if you love reading then it shouldn't be a problem anyway

Computer science doesn't have that much maths directly but you would need to be comfortable with it when you are expected to produce code. If you dislike numbers that much then it might be best to stay away.
