    I do Bio, Chem, Geography and Psychology as well as doing EPQ AND wanting a job, not to mention actually doing well in my A levels.
    I want to do a Geology degree and 3 unis I'm interested in say I need to do at least 2 sciences. However they consider A LOT of subjects to be sciences, Exeter says all of my 4 subjects are sciences which is primarily where I want to go.
    I'm definitely keeping Bio and Geog.
    Psychology actually has so much work but I love the lessons and find it easy.
    Chem is really hard right now and is known for being one of the hardest A levels but I feel like its more respected than Psychology.

    I need advice before I do too much work and feel guilty for dropping the subject.

    You can look at a few more universities and check the requirements. If they consider psychology to be a science then keep it and drop chemistry.
    However, chemistry is can be very useful is you change your mind at the end as it is the foundation of the science subjects and a lot of courses require it.
    If you think you can handle the pressure of 4 subjects then keep it. Universities don't expect you to do 4 subjects anymore and there isn't much evidence that 4 subjects makes you a better student than someone who does 3.
    I'm in year 13 and I dropped a subject. I have already got 3 offers from Russel Group Universities so you don't need to stress too much.

    If you have more questions you can ask me,
    Hope that helps

    Surely chemistry is more useful for geology no? I would keep chemistry, just for the limestone cycle lols.


    Note: I take chem at A2 and know there isn't anything on rocks. Just drop what you enjoy least. If it's chemistry then so be it, but surely there's a lot more memorisation in psychology than chemistry, and you're already overloading on the memory subjects with biology (take that too) and geography (GCSE)?

    In the end it is your decision, good luck.
