I'm still in Y11 but I want to know what degrees I can do with A-Levels in Maths, Biology and Chemistry. I'm just hoping I'm keeping my options open in the future. Thanks for any replies.

Useful TSR article : https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...-what-to-study

Have a look on Uni websites at subjects like Biochemistry, Biomedical Sciences, and all sorts of Maths and Chemistry related subjects. Here are some examples :
Biological Sciences - https://www.brighton.ac.uk/courses/s...-bsc-hons.aspx
Chemistry and Maths : https://courses.leeds.ac.uk/4187/che...athematics-bsc
Maths for Finance and Management : https://www.port.ac.uk/study/courses...and-management
'Animal' degrees : https://www.ntu.ac.uk/course/animal-veterinary-sciences

Obviously biology, chemistry, maths and related subjects like biomedicine, pharmacy and economics (the list of related subjects is pretty long). They’re also a good combination for applying to med school as you’ll most need either biology or chemistry)

You can also do law (if the university doesn’t require an essay subject), engineering (if they require maths instead of physics) or geography at places where it at a-level isn’t a requirement.

Basically you can’t do languages, English, music and history (at most places). I think most courses other than the ones I’ve mentioned don’t have subject specific requirements (criminology, sociology, philosophy) obviously there are way too many degrees and universities to list all of them.

First of all, do you all like those 3 subjects? They are quite serious subjects because the degrees you apply for with those subjects usually require high grades.

Degree you can do: medicine, biochemistry, biology, chemistry, natural sciences, biomedical etc. Basically almost anything with bio in its name.

If you want something more mathematical, do not hesitate to choose Further Maths. I did the same 3 subjects as you and I applied to medicine. I didn’t get in, realised that I wanted to do something mathematical and took a gap year to do Further maths. I personally didn’t like biology.

You're most likely to get accepted into any health care subject including medicine. As long as your grades are high so are your options. Unless the course your applying for has a specific subject you haven't taken at levels.
- medicine
- dentistry
- biology
- chemistry
- education
- nursing
- computer science
- law
- marketing
- economics
- psychology
- engineering
- geography

Most students taking your subjects would aim for healthcare sciences but there is some great site such as Theuniguide.co.uk which can help you explore your options.
