    Hi
    I'm struggling choosing my 4th a-level choice. My current ones are maths, further maths and physics and I'm trying to choose between French, Economics and maybe Chemistry. At the moment I want to study maths at uni and go into business but before I used to really want to study medicine.

    Please could you tell me the pros and cons of each subject and what career paths they would open.
    Thanks

    I have to do a fourth because of the changing a level and further maths isn't seen as a completely 'separate' subject. Also I need physics to do maths at uni

    how does the changing a level make you do 4th, it will just give you more workload

    then change further maths for economics

    I personally, if I were you, would take chemistry. With chemistry you could still potentially get into medical school if you change your mind. Additionally chemistry is a good supporting subject (as far as I'm aware) for maths (other than fm and physics).

    Also with economics, the subject is very narrow, in terms of jobs, meaning it might not be as useful as chemistry.
