    i have an offer for maths, further maths, physics & chemistry but i think it'll be way too difficult so i'm thinking of swapping out chemistry for geology?
    in the future i want to do astrophysics and i don't really enjoy chemistry as much as my other options but it might make me a better uni applicant?

    After having a quick look at Astrophysics entry requirements, the only subjects required are Maths and Physics, so you can pick whatever you like really for your third subject. If you think you'd struggle with Chemistry then I'd recommend picking something else, as you're more likely to do well in a subject if you enjoy it. Geology is a great subject (I may be biased though as I did it for A Level and am also doing a degree in it!), I'd highly recommend it. It contains elements of all the sciences, but is not as complex as the 'hard' sciences.

    I hope that helps
