It depends on your dd's aptitude and interest.

Is she not taking Maths? If she wants to take 2 humanities, then Maths and Chemistry are good choices for the remaining 2 subjects.

Maybe math at H1? But with such a combi, actually not very useful.

If your dd is taking double science and double humanities, wouldn't Math already take up one of the science subjects, leaving her with just one science subject, which in most cases is Chemistry?
