You could pick an unrelated subject for your 4th choice as a back up plan. I'm doing biology, chemistry, maths and music. I wasn't sure whether to pick music or physics, I guess you have a similar problem!

Economics goes better with things such as business, if your doing all the sciences I would probably suggest you do maths! But they are hard...

be prepared for a lotttttt of hard work! A level Biology is so difficult and content heavy. Revise a little bit everyday for good results :)

It's not random at all in fact i think it's a good combination. Economics may go better with business, but if you don;t want to do business then it's fine on it's own.

Biology isn't that hard. yes there is a lot of content to learn, but other than that it's fairly straightforward.

Physics is the hardest alevel, but it's not too bad. If you're good with numbers then you'll be fine. Its more difficult than maths though.

Chemistry is hard, but again not as hard as physics. It's not difficult, there is just a lot to remmeber. 

Hope this helps :)

Just do what you enjoy doing! :) As long as you like the subject, you'll do well! But be prepared for a lot of work!!! :) Good luck!

Like some of the others have said, 

You have already picked three subjects that work well together, all of which can be quite demanding. As most people are advised to take four subjects, why not do something that you are interested in. 

Also, doing a subject that is not entirely related to your others may show that you can be versatile in your studies, important if you are considering going to university in the future.

It might also be worth considering that most people drop a subject when they move from AS to A2.

I do Economics for AS levels to be honest it is hard however it goes well with Business however maths mixes well with the sciences you are doing. But pick what you think suits you!

With all three sciences maths would work well, but you may find it's too much work. I don't do economics at A level, but I do maths and chemistry and those together are hard work with a lot of homework

Also lots of employers would probably like economics and it would show you weren't completly science oriornatated and were a more versitlie person.

If you think you will enjoy economics, then its probably a good choice.
