    Hi guys,
    Last week I got my GCSE results which were 9A*'s, including all 3 sciences, German and Geography, and 2As. However, I cannot decide what to take at A-Level.

    I applied to do Biology, Chemistry, Maths and German however I am considering Physics and Geography also. I don't know what I want to do career wise so am looking to keep my options open.

    Is it worth doing 3 sciences or just 2 and opting for German or Geography alongside maths?
    If so, which 2 sciences are best to keep my options open, and is a language skill more useful than a facilitated 'essay' subject such as geography.

    Any feedback is much appreciated, thanks!

    Do further maths if you are able to, also you could do all sciences at AS then drop what you don't like

    You've got a lot of options. You're clearly academic and as long as you play to that strength and pick subjects you enjoy then you'll be fine. Any of those choices will take you far.*
