I plan to do chemistry at a level and hopefully aim to do it at university. i also plan to do biology at a level too but not maths. Will i be able to get far in chemistry without a maths a level?

Chemistry does include calculations but not as complex as maths A-level, it's do-able and you'll enjoy it too hopefully

You definitely can, the maths involved is not complicated but the calculations can be, if that makes any sense. But if you buy this book then you will smash every calculation in chemistry.

I want to study chemistry at university and have just finished my AS Chemistry, Maths and History exams.
You'll really love the Chemistry course! For me, even though I do Maths, I felt it only helped when figuring out units for equilibrium and the rearranging equations, apart from that you'll be fine with calculations. I resented the idea of taking Maths but it was a nice transition from GCSE to A Level and was quite okay apart from the statistics module we had. If you really want to study Chemistry your best bet would be to take Maths to get you into the majority of universities, especially top universities. But I know that it's been done without Maths to get into some universities. If you do some research into uni entry requirements I'm sure you'll find some that doesn't require maths but another science subject I.e. Biology or Physics.
Hope this helped.
