    hiya!

    I need some help please!
    I have no idea what I want to do for a career however I have chosen physics, history, english literature and chemistry..

    my school wants us to do only 3, however i don't know which 3 to do- I always intended on dropping chemistry as I got a B in this (in others I got A/A*)- but I found you need chemistry/maths to go into physics (I'd much rather do chem)

    any suggestions please! x

    make a choice of if you prefer maths/science or essay subjects

    right now you can't really do physics at a top uni as most require maths.. if you're leaning to this side then
    maths, physics and x will be good

    essay side , good subjects for this but not too sure about careers linked to this

    Every university I've looked at REQUIRES maths for both physics and chemistry degrees. If you don't do maths your options are very limited for a career in the sciences.

    ahhh! see I took my maths GCSE a year early and did the further maths course, for GCSE which I didn't enjoy! I found it really challenging...

    thank you for your advice!
