You should do ones you enjoy and stand a good chance of getting a good grade in. That should give you a chance of getting into the best uni possible.

Read these tow links for an idea on what to choose.. Key is good grades, preferably enjoy and a combination of A levels that gets you onto the degree you wish to do.

Maths, Geography, Physics.
In terms of 'hardness', I'd say Physics, Geography, Maths, but I enjoy them all so it's all good.

Physics - 9
Maths - 5
Geography - 8

I am doing Geography, Psychology and English Literature
Best to worst: Psychology, Geography, English Literature
Level of difficulty:
Psychology: 3
Geography: 4
English Literature: 7
The only thing I regret is taking English Literature instead of History. Never took English Literature during my GCSE and I'm struggling right now. Was actually about to drop Literature and replace it with History but I had a second thought and decided to give Literature a shot but big mistake.

-What A-levels you're doing
-Rank your alevels best to worst
-Level of difficulty out of 10 - 10 being the hardest
- anY REGRETS?
Best: Physics 9/10 difficulty
Runner up: Further maths 8/10 difficulty
Last place: Maths 2/10 difficulty

Honourable mention to the A-level in which I lasted 2 months before I dropped it like its hot, German, 10/10 difficulty. Which brings me onto my regrets, I realised that A-level German would become more of a humanities subject but I did not know that it would do so to the extent that it did. I should have taken one of economics, computer science or chemistry instead.

Chemistry, Biology, Spanish

Difficulty:
Chemistry; 2/10
Biology: 6/10
Spanish: 11/10

Regrets: Spanish- It's so different from GCSE Spanish and it's like you already have to be fluent in it. Really regret taking it, don't really know how I'm supposed to write in depth essays and have perfect grammar when I'm speaking.

A level languages are so difficult.. I wish I could've changed subjects, too late for that now!

What A Levels are you doing?
Biology, Chemistry, Drama and Theatre Studies, Mathematics

Best to Worst:
Drama and Theatre Studies
Mathematics
Biology
Chemistry

Difficulty Level:
Drama and Theatre Studies (5)
Biology (6)
Mathematics (8)
Chemistry (10)


Drama is probably the easiest because it is more practical than theory.
Biology isn't necessarily hard, it's just that there is SO much content to get through so that what makes it seem hard.
Mathematics is quite straightforward during the first few lessons of each topic. But then comes the last few lessons and I have no idea what is going on. Understanding the methods take a while and Statistics is boring and Mechanics is basically Physics.
Chemistry is just HARD. I don't understand any of the concepts especially Halogenoalkanes.

Any Regrets?
If I were to choose A Levels again I would keep Maths and Drama and Theatre Studies.
I would drop Biology and Chemistry because I am not pursuing Science anymore - I want to be an actor.
I would instead have picked English Literature, Media Studies, Drama and Theatre Studies and Maths.
