Hello everyone,

Enrolment Day is approaching and I don't know which one to pick ? I defo know that bio and chem are for me but I don't know about the third one... At the start, I was thinking about doing both, but now that seems like it will be stressful. It's content-heavy. If you ask me what subject I enjoy, Geography has to be it, but then again what is the benefit? Maths, can lead me to anything... And then we are back to where we began

Maths is a decent choice for most science subjects. It won't really help you with the A-levels, but would be decent preparation for a science degree which can be (to varying degrees) more mathematical than their A-level counterparts.

That said, no choice is really a "wasted" choice if you get a good grade. So if you feel like you could do better at Geography, that could be a better fit for you.

I would definitely say that if you are unsure and have the opportunity to drop one down the line, that you should consider taking all 4. Then if you make the "wrong" decision for you (if one of them even is wrong for you), you won't have to drag through the rest of A-levels with a subject you don't like.
