Computer science?? Or possibily EPQ. Definitely don't do chemistry if you want an easy subject.

Choose something you’re naturally good at (that way you won’t need to work as hard). Biology, chemistry, maths, further maths and physics are the most difficult a levels so stay away from these as your 4th (I know you already said you’re doing 3 of the above but avoid doing a 4th if you want something easy). EPQ is good but it is actually a lot of work if you want to do really well in it (though I believe it is classed as an AS so would be counted). Computer science would be quite good as it mixes well with your other subjects and from what I understand from friends who did it it’s a chill class because it’s got some coursework. Do something you enjoy or you’ll hate it and it will be wayyy more difficult due to you not enjoying it

I don't think there are any subjects that are really "easy" or "wingable" if you are aiming to get strong grades in them.

If you're good at maths and physics then you might find something like CS or chemistry a good fit for your strengths and interests and that may complement your other subjects. Although they are not necessarily easy, neither is any subject you take because you think it's easy but have no interest in and end up having no motivation to do well in and get poor grades in the end anyway.

Alternately just pick anything and drop it on the first day of school.

i took economics and business definitely wingable got a B without any effort outside of classes alongside Maths, Physics, English Lit. I've heard straight Economics is a bit harder but potentially an option for fourth. its pretty interesting too.

basically go for any 'soft' option you find interesting. economics was particularly intuitive and alot of the concepts easy to pick up and write on.. and needed less work from my perspective than politics or philosophy although those seem really interesting it seems your strengths are more analytical as opp to critical thinking/ writing. if want to prioritise good grade/ light side subject/ interested in economics go with this, if something random interested in why not just take something else.
