For my a levels i was thinking of choosing Biology, Chemistry and History. Would this be a good selection? I'm not too sure whether bio and chem are essay based or not and i'm also sure if this would be too much to take on. I don't really know what i want to do in uni either, would this selection open up a lot of different job oppurtunities?

Chemistry is not essay based, it's heavily theory and mathematically based. Bio is similar although there is one essay worth ~25 marks in one of the papers where you need to do a lot of reading around the subject. History is obviously all essay based!

If your school does AQA Psychology, the highest mark question is 16 marks at A level and 12 marks at AS. So it does require some essay skills but nothing major. I'm not sure about other exam boards.
