    Do chemistry its more useful and business is seen as a soft subject and is not very useful and you dont need business to do any degree whilst chemistry you need it for some degrees.

    -I'm currently doing A2 chemistry and I can say that yes, it is hard, but Chemistry is a highly valued subject.
    That's not to say that Business isn't valued, but Chemistry is rightly or wrongly seen as a more challenging and more academic subject than Business.
    It all depends on where you want to be in a few years time: if you want to go for any kind of STEM or an academic career then Chemistry will be more beneficial to you in the long run.

    I think chemistry matches really nicely with maths, its a hard a level but its worth it,and its a facilitating subject and will make your application look strong for uni.

    Chemistry, not to hate on Business but chemistry is a facilitating subject and so typically more respected (ofc if you applied for a business degree they might prefer business)

    I do Maths and Chemistry together and I have to say, Maths has really helped me in my physical chemistry skills, making it easier for me to do the calculations. Not that you need to do them together, but they really complement each other. Organic chemistry, maths won't help that much.

    Is this a 4th subject or one of your 3 a levels? Which subject do you one to do at uni? At what tier uni (Oxbridge, RG, etc)? If you want to go RG or universities on the same standard then it is advised you have at least 2 facilitating subjects, and rn you only have 1, so I would say Chemistry.

    It depends on what you want to go on to study at university.
    Plus I recommend that you look at economics more than business as business is seen as a soft subject by universities.
