Ok so I have a form to fill on which externals I wish to take next year 2021, I'm taking the IGCSEs and need to complete 8 subjects.
I have already taken 3(arabic,english, and math) and I'm planning on doing three next year.
I need to have two science subjects, Biology is already chosen but here comes my dilemma.
In my senior year I'm gonna do 2 A levels, both of which need to be a math or science subjects, and I don't know if I should the chemistry or physics IGCSE and which is harder, but also which is better to be done as an A level.
To simplify, I've heard people say to take the chemistry IGCSE and the Physics A level because even though Chemistry is harder than physics it's better to do it and leave the A level for physics and vise versa.
Please tell me what you guys recommend.

Thank you in advance

It depends on you really. I’m not that familiar with IGCSE but I definitely do NOT recommend doing a different science for A-Level than your IGCSE; your A-Level builds on what you’ve already learnt at GCSE so I would suggest doing the same subject. Physics is more mathsy so if you’re good at maths, choose physics. A lot of people apparently struggle with chemistry but if you can wrap your head and think logically about the concepts in chemistry then pick chemistry - I’m biased for chemistry anyways
