I'm currently picking my A-Levels and I don't know what to do. I want to take Biology, Maths and Chemistry and my 4th subject will be either History or Further Maths.I would like to study Biochemistry at university and go into Medical Research.For some context I am good at maths, like, really good, I'm predicted a level 9 GCSE and am taking additional maths this year. On the other hand, I love History, I just find it so interesting (the same could be said for maths however) and I am predicted level 8 at GCSE. Please, and advise would be useful

Check if Further Maths is a requirement if not then if you have a passion for History then I'd say go for it. Chances are you're more likely to put in effort (in terms of revision etc) because of your love for it and personally I find having an "unrelated" subject breaks everything up (it's a change from the others). Good luck xx PS - I have a friend who does all science & maths subjects and he chose History simply because he likes it even though it's not directly linked to what he wants to do (something in engineering).
**Also look into STEP it's something to do with maths (can't remember the specifics and I'm not entirely sure if it would apply for you, concerning your career path but still a bit of additional research never did any harm 😂😂)
Tl;Dr - go for history - be like Mulan and follow your heartLast edited by sunshinehss; 11-11-2017 at 08:11. Reason: I'm in a good mood hence the long and hopefully helpful reply and remembered some (potentially relevant) info - lol.
