I have just begun my AS year (Year 13 as it's called in Northern Ireland) and I have chosen Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry for my AS levels. However the idea of dropping Chemistry to focus on Further Maths, Mathe and Physics for the whole 2 years has been in my head the past couple days. This way I could achieve higher in these subjects I actually need for what I want to go on to do in University, as Chemistry was an extra. My worry with this is wether Further Maths is accepted as it's own seperate A level and that these subject choices are not too narrow. University courses I would be looking at are Physics, Engineering, Accounting, Actuarial Science, etc. Is there a way to find out which Universities accept Further Maths as a 3rd subject, or would it depend on what each course wants? If there's a better forum for this to be posted on I would appreciate a heads-up, I'm quite new to TSR. Any answers or thoughts are appreciated, thanks.

Maths, Further Maths and Physics are the holy trinity of A-level subjects. I've never encountered a university that doesn't accept Further Maths as an independent A-level, good universities will unanimously accept it.
If you're looking to do any form of Maths, Physics or Engineering (except Chem Eng) at uni then sticking to those 3 is wise. Looking at university websites is the best way of course, but they should all except it.
