    For my A Levels I've chosen Chem, Maths, Bio and History. The thing is I'm wondering whether I should change Bio to English Lit as it keeps my options open for humanities. I like both biology and english but my dilemma is that if I decide to do a science degree at (hopefully) a top uni, chemistry and maths isn't going to cut it. Also, english lit was the only subject I didn't get an a* in (i messed up my book question) so will it look bad to top unit if i take it for a level? I'd really appreciate advice from people who've been stuck in a similar situation.

    I've considered going into work such as the UN, Civil Service etc. but I've heard you can enter organisations as such through many different routes, so perhaps just sticking with biology would be better?

    Hey check the requirements for the degrees you want to do first but I'm not sure I think a science and Maths is accepted. Also not getting an A* want look bad at all you can definitely take it on especially if that grade was an A. But yeah as I said check the universities requirements for the degree you want to do
