Should I bother taking all 3 sciences at a level. Because most degrees involving physics require maths as well so I’m just wondering if I should bother just doing physics on its own really

It really depends what you are good at and enjoy plus what course or uni you are trying to access with your A levels.

Pure STEM courses normally require 2 A levels.
Some semi Stem courses will accept one stem A level things like nursing or environmental science.

You can look at how A level combinations work plus what courses they might let you do from the links below.
Grades get you into better unis, subjects get you onto certain courses.

Personally I don't think its worth it taking all 3 sciences at A levels. I took Maths, Physics Computer Science and Chemistry at AS and that was one of the worst decisions I could have made. If you do not enjoy all of the subjects you take I do not recommend it. After getting 87% in my IGCSE chem I thought myself some sort of hero and decided to venture further into the chem world. Only to receive a series of bombardment of work and assignments on a subject which I genuinely did not like at the end of the year I ended up achieving a 74% but just to get that mark was a mountain of pain and Its not at all relevant to the course I plan to take on in Uni. So I recommend doing a bit of googling on career areas that interest you the most for example engineering, take your maths and physics then you can enter most courses with adequate knowledge or medicine take bio and chem and you're sorted mostly.
