    Chemistry is way more work , for maths there is much less content and its not as hard , also chem will have the whole a level in 2 years , where as maths will have half at as and half at a2 . but drop the one you least enjoy

    I do both at AS, and Maths is harder for me personally but it's an 'enabling subject' so probably best to keep it unless it really is too hard to manage. Chemistry is easier for me, but if you want to do something like Medicine, then ideally you should keep both. Good luck with your choice .

    Keep maths and drop Chemistry.

    Maths opens alot more paths, since it's actually applied to every engineering, sciences, and somewhat art + medicine course.

    Also almost every course requires maths, especially the higher ranked universities.
