Thinking of taking Further Maths, Maths, Biology and Chemistry.
What I'm worried about is Further Maths combined with Biology- two VERY content heavy subjects. I think I'd be fine with Further Maths and for example, Physics, but not as much with Bio....

Did anyone else take Further Maths and Biology? How was it? Do you regret it?

I do maths, biology and chemistry A-levels. I find because I enjoy all of them the workload isn’t a problem. The workload of four A-levels is always a lot so unless it’s compulsory for you to do 4 or you would have issues with university requirements if you didn’t do biology/physics could you perhaps consider doing just maths, further maths and chemistry. My advice is pick the subjects you enjoy the most because an A-level in a subject you don’t enjoy would feel like a lot more work than a subject you do enjoy.

I did those 4 A levels, didn't find them unmanageable. Further maths isn't that content-heavy?

Huh, everyone I know says it's content heavy or am I crazy and hearing things? Anyways, how much time did you spend revising for them each day?

I love Maths (going into healthcare), thank you!

Hi, I do chem, physics, biology and maths. I think physics is a lot more content heavy than further maths!! Obviously not doing further maths myself I can’t speak for it too much, but with regular maths it’s mainly just practising, whereas for physics there are a lot of concepts to understand, as well as having to practise the maths!

It depends on what type of person you are, but I find biology easier than physics. There are still some difficult concepts to understand (mainly in A2) but overall the actual knowledge you need to learn isn’t too bad. It is quite content heavy though, just a lot of concepts to memorise!

My A levels ended up cancelled, but I spent the school day revising (including frees) and did homework at home, which worked totally fine.
