    Hi, doing GCSE's atm, just trying to figure out my A level options.
    I'm currently thinking of doing Maths - maybe Further Maths, and all 3 sciences.
    Is this a good idea, or should I drop Biology/Physics for a more essay-based subject like History or English. and in that which case, which English should I take?

    Not sure about my sanity tbh, but still, idk which of the sciences I should drop (Mostly likely biology), and whether I should even do all 3 sciences to start with.

    Is there any particular reason as to why you're taking these subjects? If you don't yet know what you want to do in the future, but you know you know you want to get into a STEM related field of study, then I guess these are good choices. Really, though, the best thing to do would probably be to firstly work out what you want to do in the future and be more specific than a STEM career, because no uni will ask for five STEM A-Level subjects for a STEM course.

    Idk what my options are going to be, but I kinda want them to be science-related (obviously)
    My main path for university would either be medicine or maths, but I haven't decided yet.

    I did maths, further maths and the sciences and then once I got my university offer I dropped biology and physics. It's really not that much work. It's only A levels in the end.

    If that's the case, you could consider dropping physics, maybe? Most unis are happy with maths and further maths A-Levels for a maths degree, and with medicine, you should be fine with chemistry, biology and maths.

    Trust me, you'd rather be doing better in four subjects than struggling with five.
