    I'm doing my AS-Levels i wanted to know if it's alright if i'm taking only 3 subjects for my AS-Levels. (Of course i'll be doing my A2 levels as well next year)

    If the grades are good enough, then why not?

    Some want 4

    This is probably something worth contacting the department about, as different departments might have different policies on entrance criteria. They often don't want to say outright that they will/won't make you an offer, which is understandable, but you can only ask and see. They might be able to let you know whether such students in the past have been successful in their applications.

    I can't think of anyone I know who only did three ASs, but it isn't really something that comes up once you're actually here, so there may well be some people.
