I am currently in the process of deciding which A levels I wish to take at sixth form and am worried I will take the wrong A levels that will affect my chance at what I want to do at university. I got A*s in all of my GCSEs and want to go to a good university but I am not 100% sure as to what I want to do at university.
Concerning my current A level choices, I want to take Maths because I've heard that's a subject that is helpful in all careers. Originally I was considering becoming a doctor and so decided to take Chemistry and Biology. I also wanted to take an essay based subject just in case I decide I want to go into something like Law so I chose History too.
However, in the sixth form induction day I realised I also like Physics. In the past I have been interested in atsrophysics or engineering so will not taking Physics affect my chances of doing these at university or will the A levels I have curretly be ok? But if I do take Physics instead of Biology for example, will that mean I cannot do medicine at university without Biology? It’s not about which subjects I enjoy more because I love them all but I don’t know what I want to be when I’m older. I am worried I will take the wrong A levels and then be stuck when I am in my final year of A levels. Please help.

I would recommend looking on university websites for their entry requirements for different courses e.g. for medicine you only need chemistry and another science. There may also be some overlap so i say look online. Judging from what you've said, maths physics chemistry history will open you up for a lot of courses!
