Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello.
I'm assuming by the title of this thread that it isn't relevant to confess this certain topic here but I would like to get some advice.
I'm moving to sixth form and I have currently as my a level options Biology Economics and Statistics. I'm considering in changing these to Chemistry Economics and Law. My school has advised me to choose these carefully and to also choose 2 core ones which are work overload and one free option which I will enjoy. Considering my options I would like to know which option best suits me. At uni I'm not sure in what to study but I want to know which 3 options will open the most doors for me later on. Should I stick to my first option with biology as that includes science economics and a bit of maths analysis or my second option which has both science and economics with law?

SIDENOTE: I'm trying to do as much research as possible so please don't assume I haven't done that And i have spoken with all my teachers and advisors. No hate and a little guidance will be appreciated. Thank you.

To be honest I would pick the A levels you think will give you best grades. Many universities in the UK offer foundation year courses if you decide later you want to do a degree which requires an A level you don't have.

I've heard Biology is quite a lot of work, more than Chemistry, not that Chemistry is easy.

Have you considered Maths or Core Maths? The latter is an AS or 1/2A Level.

This is your first choice before you make some very big choices. So you need to think about why you might want to do one or the other. Are you going to decide based on what is good for the future or on what would be nice to do, or on what others think, etc? This is your decision to make and no one else can make it.
