    (Original post by duckandcover)
    Im thinking of taking 5 AS levels: Physics, maths, further maths, biology and chemistry.

    Has anywone else done these AS levels if so how much is the workload?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    swap physics forgeology and thats what idid (althoughiwish i did physics)
    from my experience, and friends that did the same combination as you, its not too much work. the subjects compliment each other and you will be in sciency mode the whole time, so it should be ok.
    The only thing is you'll get less frees, but in my exp those tend to get wasted anyway.

    Personally, I wouldn't do 5; I like my free time, and I don't see a huge benefit in having 5 A-levels.

    However, if you want to do it, then good for you; if you are interested, and more importantly good at maths/sciences, then I can't see it being a problem. On the other hand, a combination of 5 A - levels like this would be killer for anyone: Art, History, Geography, Biology, Maths.
