    Oh hey, was it like biology, chemistry and philosophy? I remember then being similar to mine but can't remember if you're doing 4.

    I changed mine at least though: history, economics and chemistry now
    Yup and English Lit. But Im not sure about doing philosophy now because I sort of don't want to do 4 a levels :dontknow: Though at the same time ... philosophy sounds so interesting and the teacher on open evening was soooo nice and made it sound do fun So I'm confused. Were you not doing maths before?

    The woman who interviewed me was pushing me to take four for some reason? Did that happen to you lot?

    If you're interested in whatever it is then you might as well take it for the first month or whatever and then decide whether to drop or not
    Yeah she said " the only problem with your application is that you're not doing 4". So I just acted really indecisively and gave her like 4 subjects, so it was obvious I didn't know what to choose. Think 3 is best for me as there's no extra advantage and ill try and get top grades in the 3 I'm doing.

    Actually starting with 4 might be a good idea- they should let me drop it if I don't like it though, right?

    I'm considering Lit too but I don't think I'll do it. If I was to do a 4th it would be biology, which I do want to do. But like you, I don't really want to put myself through 4 A levels. Well on my original sheet I wrote: bio, Chem and history and was considering maths. Anyway my maths exam didn't go as planned- so I won't be doing that!
    Still want to do medicine?

    No the guy who interviewed me didn't even ask why I was doing 3 though I think that was because he wanted to get rid of me fast as I stepped on his foot :doh:

    Because some colleges only let you do FM if you do the 4 a level option because then you have more variety in A levels
