    Hi, I go back to school on Monday and still haven't chosen my fourth option, need some advice please.

    The three I've chosen are maths, chemistry and physics. I'm now stuck between biology and further maths for my fourth. I want to do chemical engineering or pharmacology at university so I have all requirement with my first three picks. I enjoy maths more than biology as it was always my least enjoyable science. I got an A* in all of them at GCSEs so I am equal ability in each. The problem is that my school only does further maths to AS so I would have to drop that one rather than have a choice in case I'm doing bad in one. I'm also worried that not takin biology will restrict me from some courses.


    Any advice on what to do? Thank you

    If you really like maths, then further maths is probably your best bet.Even though your school only teaches to AS, there are plenty of resources for you to self teach if you want to do the full A2 (including using this site for help) so don't worry too much about that. From what i've heard chemical engineering does involve a nice bit of maths so FM might be the most helpful for that, but obviously if you want to do biology then that is gonna be a required A level. I'd say think about what you want to do at uni first, then consider which would be your best option from there

    Sh*t, I meant to say chemical engineering or pharmacology not or biology. I promise you I'm not that dumb 😅
