    I'm a very indecisive person. I'm currently doing A-level Chem, Biology and Psychology. But I really want to do Physics(I was good at understanding concepts and loved doing it.)
    But I don't think I was good enough at maths and not enough drive to keep doing a question when I'm getting it wrong.
    Biology is a very depressing and boring subject.So I know I could not carry it on after 6form.

    So could you help me with my choice. Carry on or Change Biology and Chemistry to Maths and Physics.
    Another note what should I do in uni as if i carry on I would really not want to do alot on Biology.

    I got A's in the Sciences and Maths

    If you have an idea of what degree you want to do, check if the course had any required subjects because you may need to have physics or biology. If not then do they subjects that you are passionate and interested in!

    I do biology, chemistry and maths for A-level and did physics for AS. In my experience physics is so difficult and you would struggle without maths as well. Maths is difficult as everything you learn at the start is needed later in the course so if you don’t get one concept then the rest is much harder. I know people who got straight A*’s at GCSE and got D’s in their AS maths so unless you are really confident in it and will be willing to work hard then I don’t think it’s worth it. Biology is very time consuming as there is so much content but none of it is that difficult compared to the other sciences. Also biology is so varied that there may be a part that you really find interesting so hopefully you won’t find it all boring if you carry on. It’s up to you but I wouldn’t leave it too late to change since catching up is quite difficult as the work load is already a lot as it is. A-levels are a lot of work so doing something that you are passionate about makes them a lot more enjoyable. I hope this helps ☺️

    Why did your school do this if you achieved an A in it?
