Hello basically I can’t decide between taking psychology, biology and chemistry for A-levels or taking one of those out and doing french. Either taking french, biology and psychology or french, biology and chemistry. I love french-Canadian people and I’m amazing at french. But I am really interested in psychology, biology and chemistry career-wise. I would be so sad if I had to give up french because I love it so much and I am predicted a 9 at GCSE. What should I take? Please help

Maybe an unpopular opinion but I would say pick things you are good at? I studied all the 'fun' subjects at A level but I was naturally probably better at Maths and Chemistry. Genuinely wish I could go back and change my options as a Maths A level would have been bloody handy. I think it may be wise to have a mix of things you are interested in that are new to you but also some safe bets that you know you are good at.

You can easily do French in your own time. No need to dedicate an A level to it.

You’re right. I am terrified at how hard my a-levels are going to be though. I really don’t think I’m good enough, especially at chemistry because apparently the maths is really difficult and I am either going to get a 6 or scrape a 7 at GCSE maths.

6 or 7 in maths sounds fine for A-level chemistry. As someone who just finished A-level chemistry, the maths can be hard if you're not taught how to answer the questions (like me lol but you should be fine) since they usually follow a procedure however there aren't too many questions that are maths based so you'll be fine... you could get an A and get 0 marks on every maths based question.

I've watched a few videos of people giving chemistry A-Level advice and they say the maths is quite manageable, so I think you'll will be able to cope with your predicted grades. Generally, out of all the 3 sciences physics requires more advanced maths skills.
