    I really like Biology and Chemistry, they are my two favorite GCSES at present.
    However, I am not taking maths on for A-level nor Physics.
    Because of this, i'm just wondering if I will actually be able to get anywhere with the Biology and Chemistry - ie from applying to courses in uni etc.
    I'm pretty sure I will, but a lot of my friends are telling me otherwise which is very confusing.
    Can someone help? Is it okay just to take them two?

    It depends what you want to do after A Levels. For stuff like medicine, chemistry and biology would be good enough for a lot of good unis (inc. Russel group), however Cambridge for example sometimes wants a third maths/science and so would other more competitive unis.

    Lots of biological-leaning future science graduates don't have Physics - it certainly doesn't rule anything out (or much, anyway)
