    hi
    i really need some opinions, i am currently choosing my A-levels and doing my GCSE, i really want to do math, physics and product design.

    But most people i have spoken to are telling me that it will be incredibly hard to balance all three of these subjects, and i was worried that i wont be able to handle it. For my mocks i got math:A physics;A and graphics :A*

    So my overall questions are , will it be do-able ? are the good choices ? and would it be better if i swapped out physics for business ?

    I think that your choices are definitely doable, and that they are actually really well-balanced. Your GCSE grades are high, which would suggest that you work at a pretty high standard anyway. Basically, yes, those subjects are doable. You will have to work hard, but that's true for any A Level; better to work hard at something you enjoy than something you don't. They are good choices, and I personally don't think business would be much of an asset to you now. I think it's much better that you stick to your subjects which are possibly more stimulating and valued more highly by universities. Everyone I know that does business hates it, so you should definitely only do it if you actually love it, and it doesn't sound to me that you do. Physics and Maths are highly valued STEM subjects, and having Product Design as well will balance you out.

    Go ahead and follow what you really want to do!

    I am currently doing those exact same A levels and I got an A in all of those subjects in GCSE. However I would say only do subjects you really have an interest for. I chose physics because I thought it balanced well with PROD1 and Maths, and even though it does, it is an extremely difficult A level and I am struggling with it.

    Whatever you choose make sure you have an interest for the subject and that you're willing to do a lot of work for it, because the work load is immense. Good Luck
