I currently have about 2 weeks to make my A-Level choices, but i’m stuck. The main issue is that i didn’t do GCSE Chemistry, but want to do A-level biology and potentially go into a degree such as neuroscience or forensics - but this wouldn’t be possible would it?
I’m pretty set on doing english literature, but i don’t really see myself using it for a career, so is there any point?
Also, i’m not 100% set on any career, but something mathematical is possible, so would doing a level Maths but not further maths since my school doesn’t offer it be a problem?

For neuroscience, I’d definitely recommend doing biology and maths since you can’t do chemistry and I think you’ll need 2 science subjects so unless physics takes your fancy, maths would be a better option since you mentioned a possibility of going into a maths based career. I don’t think Further Maths is always required when doing a maths degree (but you might want to check that) and if it isn’t available to you then I’m sure the university will take that into consideration. Doing English Literature won’t pose any problems and will simply show breadth which universities will in general like but alongside it I’d recommend doing two sciences as you seem to want to do a degree that’s scientific/mathematical based

I've moved this thread to the A-levels forum - good luck choosing your options!
Have a great day
As for English Lit, have you looked at various universities that you might be interested in going to and seeing what A-levels they prefer for whatever degree you are thinking of?
