    Chem and bio are good, maths may have been helpful but not necessary.
    History is a little odd but shows variety and probably demonstrates good writing skills - as long as you can justify it.
    Honestly, chemistry is the most important one, as long as you do well in that you'll be fine.

    Probably good. But maybe do a fourth subject if you want to get into a Russel Group uni. History is a difficult subject but it's a good idea not to take all sciences. I'd say take something else instead of history as a fourth subject for AS and also do maths. You can do something like Sociology, Psychology, philosophy or a language as an AS level subject.

    A fourth subject isn't needed to get into a russell group uni. Many colleges/sixth forms don't even allow taking more than 3 subjects now and so it's not required to take more than 3.
    I don't even think maths is needed?

    Maybe things have changed since my days. Maths is not compulsory I think only chemistry is. I believe most unis ask for two sciences minimum. But maths is a great subject to do and will defo help. It's also great if you changed your mind and wanted to do something else like economics or law or something. In my school, everyone who got 7A/A* or better at GCSE had to do 4 A Levels but I went to a public school so maybe it's different in state schools.
