So, I still didn't start a levels, I'm still in Y11.

I'm thinking of taking chemistry(if I get A*A* in double science), Further maths(if I dont like it i will drop it), maths and physics. So, my question is how hard is it and should I pick these 4 hard courses at the same time.

Difficulty 1/motivation.

Further maths will make maths very easy.

Physics is not hard if you practise enough questions; maths is the same.

I can't really comment on chemistry, but you have a standard combination of subjects to do a science or maths related course at university.

Doing all 4 at a2 atm. I cant really comment on how hard you will find it, but i'd say if you enjoy the physical sciences and maths and qre willing to put the effort in then its a very good foundation for any stem degree

Further Maths = More Maths =/= Harder Maths

Doing Further Maths will make you spit on the Maths peasants who think 3 modules in a year is hard.

If you enjoy maths (or at least don't hate it) and you are willing to spend more time on it then yes, take Further Maths.

I get the principle of what you're saying, but lets be honest some of the further maths modules are considerably harder than normal maths (such as fp2 fp3 etc)
