Hi, thank you so much for your advice.
My school usually makes us do 4 a levels and drop one only if we need to. I'm going from maths, further maths, computer science and econ
to maths, chem and econ, only because I browsed through the a level chem and bio textbooks yesterday and think it's going to be very risky for me to try and cover the whole 2 new a levels (chem and bio) before May exams and get A*s.
If I took just chem, I will definitely keep my maths, along with econ. I'm just really nervous about this tho since I wanted to go to a london uni or cambridge since it's close to home. The fact that I probably won't take bio means Imperial, UCL, Kings, Leeds are already out due to requirements for bio.
Chances of Cambridge are low too since I'm taking 3 a levels and most successful applicants take 4 as I did. I also don't have biology is another issue as even tho some colleges say they are fine with chem and one science/maths, it's all comparative in that application process and so many would have bio too (3 sciences whereas I have only 2).
I'm also nervous because people have told me Cambridge interviews are very scientific eg they ask you the function of the kidney and mark your answers on depth, fast thinking and retainment of A-level knowledge. I won't be in a very good position if they ask me bio qs.
I just hope I get into Cambridge tho, I've always wanted to study there. QMUL is good too, as it is close by to me and a good uni. Everywhere is extremely competitive and even tho I meet some requirements w my subjects, it's comparative, so I need extra to really stand out.
