    as some of you might know iam considering taking at least 2 sciences for a levels, but iam worried as i believe that i may not neccserialy be taking a degree that involves sciences (as iam completely unsure what to do with my future) but i still want to physics and chemistry or biology because i like those subjects and want a respected CV. should i go for it or pick 2 other humanities (bearing in mind my definant a level choices include maths and english lit)

    Yeah it's a good idea to choose 2 sciences as well, it would keep your options open. Just choose the two you think you'll enjoy most and do best in.

    People don't pick Biology just because they want to do Medicine. You could do Biology/Biochemistry/Pharmacy/Biomedical sciences etc etc.

    yeah but i dont know if i want to do those, also they say chemistry is a great a level to take because it represents a thinking mind and apparently goes with subjects such as economics. is this true?

    It is a good A Level, and yes it is well respected. Personally, I'm finding Chemistry much better than Biology. It's more interesting and there aren't so many facts to learn, it's a bit more about application.

    Yeah I'd go for two. Only if you're interested in them though, they can sometimes be hard going.

    Take chemistry because it's the best. :p: I would say pick biology over physics if you enjoy it more, both are 'respected' anyway.

    yeah but for someone who may persure a non science carrer dosen't physics show a better element of being able to figure out problems

    But then if you don't want a science career it probably doesn't really matter which science A levels you do, and maths shows good problem solving skills. Alternatively you could do another arts subject instead of a third science. Personally I would take subjects you enjoy most because A levels are hard and taking subjects you're less interested in will make them harder.
