    Maybe have a look at marine biology courses you're interested to see what their entry requirements are? I have always said to myself pick subjects that I have a passion or will enjoy, you'll love going to the classes and enjoy revision too. Good luck!

    Hey, aspiring Marine Biologist here. I found that most Biology or Marine Biology courses required Biology + one out of Maths, Chem, Physics.

    So you would be fine doing Bio, Maths, Spanish and Business.

    I am also an aspiring marine biologist
    I have found that they don't specify chemistry but when the admissions people talk to you they REALLY want you to take chemistry... But then it depends on where you apply
