Stuck on what to do for A Level

Im torn between wanting to be someone in the biology/chem "area" of careers, or do something in music. I want to do Biology, Chemistry and Music for my A-Levels but I don't know if you would need maths - or something along those lines - to get into a course of one of the top 10 universities, which is something I would love to do. I feel like if I pick music I won't be able to get into a really good university but if I don't pick music I will feel stuck in never having music as a career option. I don't have long until I pick my A-Levels and I feel like I'm going to lock myself in no matter what I choose

Hi I would advise going on potential universities websites you may want to apply to and see that subjects they would want you to take on to do a specific course. Sometimes you might not need maths as 2 sciences are enough but as stressed it is better to check unis websites as they will be the ones looking at your a levels etc. Same with music but I'm assuming you need music a level anyway so that is set. You may want to look at Russell group informed choices as they have an a level tool that you can use to see what potential degrees you can do with the a levels you have picked.
Best of luck xx
Also you could do 4 levels but only if you know confidently you can handle it
