It really depends on what you are planning on doing at university.

Also, why do you have to pick 4 A-Level subjects? Is this something your school does?

Actually, that's a good point. I was aware you can study 3 or 4 subjects, but Unis only need 3.

Yes, unless OP is taking A-Level Mathematics/A-Level Further Mathematics.

Well, the school I am applying to requires 4 A-level subjects, not 3.

I have not decided specifically what I would like to do.
However, I am considering engineering or something from the science field linked to computer science and/or geography.

I think Physics would be a great choice, if not essential, for engineering.

If you were getting 8s or 9s in gcse maths, further maths would defo help with computer science and engineering.

I'd suggest physics or further maths. You will struggle to get into good engineering or computer science courses with only maths alevel. Almost every single decent engineering course in the UK requires either physics or further maths as well as maths to even be considered.
Even if you don't know what you want to do... they will open up doors and you'll basically be able to do any degree you want(with the exception of like medicine or chemistry).

From what i've heard from about 6 different people... further maths isnt that much content. some of my friends have even called it half an alevel so... if you are good at maths i'd suggest taking it.
