Hi guys, I want to know whether carrying on with my four subjects would be a good idea or not. Here are my AS results:
BTEC Applied Law - Distinction*
English Literature - A - Don't have marks yet
Government & Politics - A - 66 UMS Unit 1, 98 UMS Unit 2, 164/200 UMS overall. I'm surprised about Unit 1 and I'm going to get the script back and possibly go for a remark, so that may well go up.
History - B - 68/100 raw mark.
My Head of Sixth is strongly opposed to me carrying on with four subjects. However, she says if I really want to do it I can but will have to sign something saying I can't go crying to them when it all goes wrong or something.
Now, if I had to drop one I would drop the BTEC Applied Law. However, the BTEC takes about 1/5 of the effort of a proper A-level. There are no exams, no revision, it's not difficult, and I could probably finish all the coursework by the end of December or January at the latest. I really don't think it will impact my other subjects at all.
What do you think? Should I petition to carry on with all four? Will having four be beneficial to university applications at all, even a little bit?
