I'm really good with chemistry, physics is not too hard, but I can't stand maths. I want to take chemistry and physics, but I don't want maths, what subject should I take in place of maths?

what are your aspirations?

i dont believe anyone who thinks they can get a higher grade in chemistry than maths. the former is empirically harder.

gcses and a levels are completely different. you will probably get a higher grade in maths than chem which is the hardest a level.

if you want to do chemistry at uni i recommend maths. no other commonly-taught A level subject has synergies with chemistry other than the lab element of biology

Well anyone who is better at chemistry than maths...
doesn't matter. grade boundaries are higher in chemistry because it's studied by a higher calibre of student on average

no you need three a levels. donr get the wrong impression, im not telling you that you need to take maths. it's just preferable thats all. i dont see why you'd do well in chem and phys which both have higher grade boundaries than maths but not maths itself soo
