    I would say just drop the maths, and take Spanish instead as it is a wonderfully interesting subject. I also have a friend doing Spanish, Biology and Chemistry who want to go on to do medicine at university so these options are perfectly fine and I wouldn't say that you definitely need maths as Chemistry is a mathematical subject. Enjoy =)

    As you've lived there for four years the A level probably wouldn't be too difficult for you so you may as well do it as an extra and have four. My friend did Maths, Chem, Bio and Spanish last year and is now doing medicine at cambridge.

    The only way to know for sure on that one is to ask admissions for the unis themselves - some might accept it, some might not. If some places are happy to take you, then you're golden. If not, you may have to continue with maths.
