    It depends which universities you're considering going to, but out of the options you've given, biology and further maths are sometimes considered stronger subjects than RS and psychology, as biology and further maths are considered A List subjects, whilst RS and psychology are often not. Maths, Chem, Bio and FM is a very strong combination and would allow you to do any maths related course at uni or medicine/sciences too! If you're really wanting an essay based subject, maybe choose one like history or english? However, if you want to do maths/science at uni you don't even need 1 essay based subject, so unless you're considering doing something arts based at history, don't worry about an essay subject.

    Do subjects you really enjoy studying for a levels it will make coping with them easier. Don't feel pressured into choosing specific subjects because of uni courses which you might change your mind about anyway.

    I want to do maths and chemistry at a level. Decided I don't want to do biology. I hate physics and I'm not sure if I should do further maths because it seems like physics and I don't really like physics
    I don't like Physics either. I do Further Maths and even the Mechanics I like as it is just the Maths side

    yeah I just realised how stupid the question was. Doesn't unis see further maths as the same as maths, so not its own a level?
    Absolutely not; Further Maths is seen as very valuable for a lot of courses

    Can I tempt you towards history?

    Only consider it if you are able to;
    A: live and breathe history (throw yourself into the subject)
    B: If you slightly enjoy essay writing (2x 2hr30 exams, you've got to make the most of your time)
    C: If you can form opinions quickly on a topic based on a given title (helps in the exams, definitely)

    Is it really hard? Is it like physics?
    The Mechanics modules are similar to Physics, however, I actually like Mechanics and never really enjoyed Physics. Of course it is harder than just doing single Maths but I love it

    I don't really like history. I chose it as one of my GCSEs options and I don't really enjoy it. I mean it is interesting but not really my kind of subject. Im just hoping to get an A in it.
    OK, well I understand- I wish you the best of luck with your future!
    Maths and Chemistry are good, solid choices

    I might do further maths as my third a level then. I hope it isn't too hard to learn. My year has the number gcse for maths and English, and I know I could've gotten an A* in maths but now I might get a 7, an 8 of I'm lucky. 9 is just way too high.
    I wonder what I should do for my fourth subject. I've thought about rs, but I'd hate debating, economics but not really clear on what they do there, psychology seems interesting. I don't want my subjects to be really narrow since I'm picking maths, further maths and chemistry
    I'm in Year 12 currently and want to study Computer Science (hopefully at Cambridge)

    I do:
    Maths
    Further Maths
    Computer Science
    French

    For your fourth subject, pick something you will enjoy the most; you're unlikely to have unis complaining about a 4th subject

    What do you do in computer science? Is it fun
    Well obviously I am going to like it as I did it at GCSE and want to study it at university! Most of my class is planning to drop it after this year but I love it!

    I wanted to do it at GCSE but there was only a few others who wanted to do it. Do you just do programming, or loads of theory?
    The majority is theory (only 20% coursework)
