    Hi, new to the TSR, I've got to decide which A levels I would like to take by tomorrow. I'm looking at History to Law at Oxbridge, or possibly Surveying at uni. Currently I know I will take History and English Lit, and two of the following: Physics, maths, chemistry or biology. I'm not sure what to take, please help!

    biology - it takes good memory and you should have that considering History and English Lit
    maths - very useful A-level to have and it will expand your choices

    Any other options?

    I would suggest biology, what about your fourth?
    As said above, maths is useful and certainly not frowned upon.

    Well classics is an option but I've heard it's considered too "soft"

    Thanks for the help, my teacher says I should take maths but I just don't really enjoy it- that's where the doubt in my mind rises.

    Don't take an a level you don't really enjoy/have doubt on. You gotta get those grades and the motivation. My bro took maths a level cos his teacher said he should, he hated it at GCSE, took it at A level, got a U I think.

    This is what Im worried about, because I'm doing Further and the normal maths gcse and I'm expected to get top grades, but I'm thinking that if I don't enjoy it I wont do well at a level.

    For surveying you migth need Math and Physics. In case you dislike Math, you should really look into the Math syllabus at A Level and look at the course contents and course requirements.I think for surveying you will need Math, or?

    Physics gives you a good foundation to understand technology.
