I have gone with maths,chem,geog and further math as my subjects.

Just wondering as I'm more of a logical person whether to drop geography or not.

Previously was thinking of dropping either further maths or chem but they may be required for my career choices.

Hve done all subjects currently for about 2 weeks and all seem OK to me and interest me.

But also taking 4 is lot of work

Drop it. It’s better to do well in 3 subjects than not as good in 4

drop colouring in, sorry I mean geography, if you know that you struggle with the subject/ feel like it's negatively affecting your performance in the other three and you don't need it for your uni course/ career aspirations

The thing is I enjoy geography and think of careers like env science,ATC,engineering or investment banking or like finance

Its also like a change from other subjects with writing but I enjoy it.

I'm not sure what unis require further maths to study any of my career choices

If you drop geog, your 3 A Levels will be Maths, Further Maths & Chem, right?
I'd be careful about this. Some universities consider this too limited a range of subjects, so they won't accept you.
Some universities though, e.g. LSE for Bsc Economics, say they are perfectly happy accepting people with 3 A Levels (of which 2 are Maths & FM), but they highly recommend the 3rd subject be an essay based one - which chemistry is not.. So yeah, I'd be super cautious about dropping.
I'm a Y13 taking Maths, Further Maths, Econs & Chem so I can understand how you feel. It is overwhelming. But I promise you, you adjust to the workload really quickly as long as you've got a good work ethic; it's not impossible to keep up with
