    Definitely further maths. Computer science is a very natural fit. Physicists often end up going into economics so you could think about that. It sucks that you can't do biology or chemistry though if that's what you want to do. Are there any other sixth forms you can go to?

    I would look into taking bio/chem elsewhere.

    Are you planning to go to university? If so, what subject are you thinking of doing?

    I took Maths, Physics and French. I did a Maths degree. It can be a good idea to take a language or humanity as it rounds out your subjects and also keeps doors open. If you want to do Physics or Maths at university your third subject can be whatever so just take something you enjoy.

    I want to do Maths or Physics at university. So I think I might take Business studies or economics. For my fourth maybe I will look into IT as I got an A overall for computing at GCSE. However my school is not offering Computing at A-level so IT might be the way.

    Although since you talk of humanities which would go best, geography maybe?

    Too few students signing up to Chemistry? It is usually the either the most popular or second most popular AS subject in my old sixth form college. Perhaps go somewhere else if this is what you are interested in?

    A language
    Not taking a language again at my school because the teachers leave every single term. For year 11 I had 4 different teachers and 2 had very very poor English.

    Thanks for your suggestion though

    Yeah I think it will be a good idea as it can tie in closely with the sciences
