I need advice for my A-Level options:
this is what i have as my first choice
-chemistry
-maths
-psychology
-economics

and this is my second choice of A-Levels
-chemistry
-physics
-psychology
-economics

I'm scared about choosing maths because I'm not sure if whether i'll meet the grade boundaries for it.

You need to take maths for physics and chemistry I think?

Physics and chemistry without maths sounds like a recipe for disaster. If you're genuinely worried about not being allowed to take maths A-level, you will almost certainly find chemistry a struggle. Plenty of people find it a struggle even with grade 7-9 in maths.

i dont struggle with maths a lot.., but i get really bad stress and anxiety for my maths exams which causes me to make mistakes and forget things, and seeing how i have reacted with these exams i'm sure i will pass but wont get the grade i need in order to do the subjects.

Yes literally don't do physics unless u want to do something physics related at uni and if you do then you take maths as well. You can take maths in place of economics or psychology and then drop it if you don't like it as you do 4 anyway

That's unfortunate - have you looked into special consideration for those exams?

However, you do need to think about whether the same will happen in a chemistry exam. A-level chemistry is very different from GCSE - there is much more maths involved, as well as a lot of content.

I havent really but if i do get to do maths A-Level i will for sure ask if there is anything they can do to help with that.
On the other hand, I feel like i will be able to handle chemistry - i talked to my teachers about taking it and they agreed that i should do it. Its also a subject that wont mainly be based on maths as theres written work too which will help me to not to stress too much about it.

I've been recommended to do physics with chemistry as I want to do something science related in uni, and my teacher also suggested that i should take physics as I enjoy it and get pretty good grades too.
The thing is if i do take up maths, physics and chemistry, i dont know which subject between economics and psychology i should do.

Are you planning on dropping economics/psychology after year 12?
