Are these A level choices not so good?

Are there any good degrees that make use of these, or are they far too different?

If you are interested in Medical, is suggest change physics to chemistry. for lew you are fine because of the history (essay skills). I think you need maths to do physics at uni as well. Best bet is to look at Biology related things, as there are many that these degrees fit with. (i.e. Bio engineering)

I would replace History with maths since maths will boost physics and vice-versa, plus there aren't many jobs that require both sciences and history as far as I know so history would seem like a waste of time to me. It's also quite a time consuming subject and you're definitely going to need that time and energy for physics and biology

If it gets altered to: Computer science, Biology, Physics, would it work better?

The history is the odd one out, but if you really have a passion for the subject, then you should still take it. In terms of degrees, the history can get you into a Politics & International Relations degree. In terms of your other subjects, mechanical or computer engineering is an option, but finding a university to accept physics instead of maths would be a real challenge.

You're still going to face issues with the physics. If you want to do anything engineering based or anything else to do with technology theory, you'll have to take maths instead of biology, or maths instead of physics.

Edit: could land yourself in a computer science or software engineering degree.

Can't realistically do maths and end up with a B or above, after a bit of research many universities require maths along with physics to get on any good physics related courses, guess i will have to go with chemistry instead of physics, or just swap out physics for Computer science
