A level decisions

As of now, I'm a year 11 and have already applied for Biology, Chemistry and Psychology for A levels in sixth form (very basic options). The thing is, right now I'm starting to rethink my A level choices. I definitely want to keep a science subject (mostly chem), something that'll open up my career choices, but I also want to dabble/ I'm interested in tech, like ICT or Computer science. Can anyone tell me information about any of these A-Levels and give me a reason of why I'd like it or why I should pick it. I would say that my favorite thing is being a problem solver and troubleshoot things. It makes me happy when I finally achieve something great that pushes me forward in my goals.

hi! they sound like great choices, especially if youre interested in something like medicine
chemistry is great to take (im in y12 taking chem) have you considered maths? ive found it goes great with chemistry but also allows you to go into something like computer science and really opens up options
some of my friends really enjoy computer science and would go with other science subjects
id say consider maths if you like it enough and the computer science/ICT also would be great

There's some topics in maths that I'm not very keen on. But for computer science it's more specific. I've always been intrigued in tech but not that much to the point where I'd dedicate a bunch of time to it, but on the other hand, I've also done some coding in year 9 before (I know that's a long time ago) But it was something I enjoyed doing even if it was something simple.
