    Hello, guys. I am currently doing A Level and the subjects that I am taking is Physics, Chemistry, Economics and Maths. I'll be sitting for my AS exam soon in May/June.

    However, I am still unsure on what I should consider for my degree. I thought about getting a degree in Maths but when I looked up about it, all the info just made me to lose my interest.

    Second, I might wanna do a degree in Chemistry or English. I have always loved English but that's like my last option.

    Can y'all help me out here on what I should consider, please?

    I'm pretty sure you can't do English at University without English Lit/combined at a level and if they do, you'll be at a big disadvantage because you don't have a single essay based subject.
    Chemistry is a better option given your choice of a levels.

    Oh, that's kinda disappointing. Well, are there any uni recommendations for Chemistry?

    You could do Medicine if your grades are good enough and there's not a specific biology requirement. Chemistry alone is good. There's so many choices. Economics could even be an option.

    I am not interested in Medicine. Thank you so much for your suggestions

    Apply for one of these:

    http://www.etrust.org.uk/chemistry-kent-0

    It'll give you a better idea of what is involved (and might direct you to something completely different).

    Consider a form of engineering--physics and maths and chemistry occur a lot within all disciplines of engineering. That could be chemical, aerospace, mechanical, electrical, and so forth. Or you could do a theory-based degree, like mathematics, or theoretical physics.
