    Should I swap my a levels which are chemistry economics and geography for chemistry physics and maths? I feel like I can’t do anything with my current a levels and everything I look at requires maths.

    Chemistry physics maths sounds pretty good and there’s lots of careers you can go into. If I were I’d swap them. Go on the ‘which university a level calculator’, it’s really useful and tells you what degrees your a levels will allow you to do.

    Go for it! It’s not too late! I switched from chemistry to geography and it was the best choice I have ever made. If you love maths then definitely do it - it’s not worth learning all those case studies in geography if you won’t do anything to do with it in the future

    How late did you change? I can definitely catch up w/ physics and I started doing maths so I’d just be going back to that so would’ve only missed a few weeks

    You pretty much need maths if you study (or want to study) physics.

    Yes so I’ll see if I can go back to maths 1st before even bothering to ask physics and I’ll see because I’ve recently become v interested in physics
