next year i’m set on doing maths and psychology for a level and for my third option i’d like to do biology but i’m unsure if it’s worth is without chemistry.
i’m aiming for a 9 in maths and a 9 in bio in gcses (i got maths-8 bio-9 in mocks) but i’m definitely not at the same level in chemistry (mock grade was a 7).
i enjoy biology and think it’s interesting, plus i’m doing triple science so it feels like a waste to not do any science a levels but is a biology a level a waste without chemistry ?
if i didn’t do bio i’d probably do economics which would go with maths (and i’m doing a business gcses aiming for a 9 - mocks was an 8) but i don’t know if economics actually interests me .

nah not worth it, plus it's a lot of work. do econ instead.

i did bio, maths and econ a levels and then a degree in bio.

Do bio because it sounds like you're not really interested in economics.

A subject will feel like a lot more work if you don't really enjoy it.

normally true but that doesn't count when you are comparing bio and economics A levels, as someone who did both.
