    I'll be choosing my alevels in 2 years from now. I know my school does Further maths, it seems that every subject you wonna do in Universities require at least 1 science and maths alevel.

    Is Triple Science and Maths the best all rounder to gurantee a spot in a good uni or no?

    You can't do Further Maths without Maths - so that's 2 A-levels right there.

    Universities aren't looking for all-rounders (and just doing sciences isn't "all-round" anyway...).

    First of all, you have two years - relax, focus on your GCSEs for now!
    Not every subject requires at least one science and maths A level - Law, History, English literature, Archeology, Philosophy ... you get the point. And as someone else has pointed out, you can't just do Further Maths without doing maths, which would bring a total of five A levels - which is a LOT of work. Anyway, triple science and maths aren't all round in the slightest; they're very focused on STEM. You'll find that it's not just the subjects you do, but the grades you get that are important.
