    Well at university level I would like to study either medicine or engineering, as both interest me quite a lot. And I was wondering, how hard would it be taking Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths all at AS level?

    I'm taking the exact same subjects from Islamabad and just got my AS result. Although I was initially reluctant to take Maths... I think it was a good choice as you're not restricted as much as you are with, say, triple science. In my year there are around 20 to 25 students with the same combination and in bigger schools there are whole sections, so don't worry you won't be the only one.
    Just make sure you stay on top of everything and it'll be fine. The amount of work you need to get done will increase, for example in O Level Biology it took me 5-10 minutes to complete the cell chapter but now the same chapter in AS takes me 1 hour minimum to do properly. But you'll get used to the pace soon enough.
    Congrats on your O Level result!
