    If you've taken Biology and/or Chemistry for A-Level why did you take it, what spec did you do and how did you find the subject/s.

    I also want to know since I'm taking Combined Science for my GCSE's for those that did this and then moved on to A-Levels and did the sciences, how did you fair?

    I want to take Geography and Psychology as two of my A-Levels however I am willing to rethink this and drop out Psychology and put in Biology and Chemistry.

    And lastly, if I were to take only one of Biology or Chemistry with Geography and Psychology which would be more beneficial later on? Degree wise for options and doors open?

    Many thanks

    Hey! I think this is a personal decision to be honest. At GCSE have you found biology or chemistry more enjoyable? I took both and I loved biology and hated chemistry. It just wasn't for me, I found it dull and repetitive, but I know people who really loved it! It's all about picking what you enjoy but also playing to your strengths.

    Are there any sort of courses that you have your eye on?
