I'm in the process of choosing A-levels, and I'm sure I want to do maths and further maths. I'm considering Physics, and Government and Politics. We're being encouraged to only do 3 subjects, but if I want to study 4 I've been told it is possible.
I want to know what you think. Are these good choices?
At the momenot I want to do maths at Uni and I'm predicted high grades in Maths and Physics. (I'm interested in Politics and current affairs.)

If you think you're capable of doing 4 A-levels, there is no reason why it wouldn't be possible. Your college should let you drop one if you take it and it's too much work, but if you don't take it, it's unlikely you'll be able to pick it up once the term has already begun.
If you're interested in maths at uni then physics will definitely be an advantage, and I would say taking maths, further maths, and physics together is less work than a lot of other combinations, as there is overlap between maths and physics (mechanics) and skills in one will be relevant to all three. Also, that gov pol is very essay based, and if that's not your thing you may struggle with it, but if you're good at essays it could be a good way to show that you're a well rounded student.
