I just finished my AS-levels, taking Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I'll be looking to take some sort of engineering or physics degree.
In Maths, Further Maths and Physics I got As.
In Chemistry I got a B, which I was well pleased as I expected to do lots worse. We took one module in January and I got an A in that, but in the last 2 modules I got a C and D. If I continue on this form I'd probably get a C overall at A2.
So the question is should I take my B at AS and run, or go onto A2 and get a C at best. Would a C at A2 look any better than a B at AS (if better at all)?
The other thing that might weight my decision is that we only have 5 taught lessons of Maths a week to do A2 Further Maths and Maths, so taking Chemistry might hurt my chances of getting an A in Further Maths.

Just drop Chemistry. No point in dragging yourself down with a C if you can get 3 A's straight

Lol i did the exact same A-Levels 4 years ago
Maths,Further Maths, Chemistry and Physics
If you are doing Alright in the other then drop them
Although TBH Further Maths may get a little harder, i know to get an A at A-Level is tough. If u get an A in FUrther Maths A-Level u should prob go onto do maths at A-Level cause further maths is almost degree lvl stuff.
I Didnt do that weel at Further Maths and was lucky i took Chemistry cause it boosted my grade so i could do an engineering degree . I did Cybernetics at Reading Uni. (Robotics)
