I’m thinking of applying to a biology based uni course. I’m definitely taking biology (duh) at a level and PE because I find the course really interesting and it’s one I’m likely to do well in. I don’t particularly want to continue with 4 a levels, chemistry and maths too, so I was wondering which is more useful to take. I’m probably marginally better at maths but I feel like chemistry is more applicable. Opinions?
Thanks.

Taking Chem will give you wider options of biological science degrees - not just plain Biology, Zoology, Exercise Science etc.
It opens up other areas like Neuroscience, Biomedical, Cellular & Molecular, Genetics, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Parasitology, Virology etc etc. Many of these might accept Maths instead of Chem as a second science, but the Chem A level material will be more useful in the long run.
