    I'm currently doing Maths, Further Maths, Biology and Latin. Should I do Chemistry as well in order to get a good science degree? Does anyone know if it is necessary for Natural Sciences biological pathway at Cambridge?

    Chemistry is pretty much essential for natsci at chemistry, without it your options are very limited. Biology isn't actually a requirement for any of the natsci topics but chemistry is. Chemistry underpins biology and it is essential for higher level study, particularly at Cambridge.

    I did NatSci at Cambridge and believe me - you will be at a serious disadvantage if you don't do it, regardless of what you currently think you want to specialise in. The NatSci course is specifically designed to be broad at the beginning and 'funnel' towards a speciality later. You're broadly either Physical (Physics/Chemistry/Maths) or Biological in your Part 1A (=first year), but Chemistry is highly relevant to both of these strands.
