    7 is way too much, unis only want 3/4 really. I study 5 and its a lot of work and they dont even have coursework and by guessing the arts subjects have a lot of coursework in them. I would cut down all the different artsy ones and just do them as hobbies

    Not really no, unless your a child prodigy, which (no offence) but you're probably not considering those choices. To be honest I don't think many Universities would value half those subjects anyway. The ones they would I suspect are English, Art, Art History, Business Studies (marginal).

    My cousin did 7 A levels and a degree at Oxford.
    He is currently unemployed and spends all his time on world of warcraft.
    Just focus on the ones that you enjoy the most and need for what you want to do - otherwise you will work yourself into the ground
    A degree at Oxford and he is spending time on WOW?

    Hi, I have currently enrolled for 7 subjects for my AS Levels:

    Fine Art
    Photography
    Graphic Design
    Textiles Design
    Art History
    English Language and Literature
    Business Studies

    However, it seems that it is recommended to take only 3-4 subjects.

    Do you think it's feasible to do that many?
    Are you feeling suicidal?! :eek:

    When I was taking my Audio Engineering Diploma at SAE, my classes were only about 3-3.5 hours a day, but I spent almost 12 hours per day, for every single day of the week, doing assignments and studying for exams.

    I guess, when you get into the hang of it, it kinds of rubs off? It's not that much of fun, but the end results are extremely satisfying.

    I am not sure whether anyone can relate to this? But, if you can, you will get the drift of it.

    If I had an Oxford degree, I would most probably be overjoyed, then get to work straight away.

    He probably has a degree in WOW too. LOL.

    I will most probably take some as hobbies instead of as an examinable subject.

    Just realized that I am really getting older, and need my sleep.

    Seriously though, don't put yourself under too much strain because you feel you can handle it- i know it's hard letting go from subjects from GCSE but at one point in your life you will have too

    5/6 will be more than enough!

    no reason why not but its probably mean you dont get such good grades over all and as most unis only ask for 3a2's plus 1 as seem pointless...
