i thought they only took into account numbers of sittings of major subjects? (maths, english science)??(Original post by heninacoop)
I wouldn't bother - as said by several people, they're also concerned about how many sittings you did your GCSEs in.

It is possible to get an A* by teaching yourself from the sylabus. I taught myself triple science with 1 after school lesson a week and got an A* in the mocks ( not too sure about the real thing though ). However, i wouldn't reccommend doing two extra GCSEs whilst also doing ASs. It was quite a lot of hard work and stressful near the exams as i had to find past papers and attempt to mark most of them myself. (apart from the mocks) It might be better to do an extra AS in either Psychology or sociology, but if you think that you can handle the extra stress of doing them and would enjoy them then do it, but if your only doing it to improve your chances of getting into Oxbridge which could also backfire if you didn't get A*s in them i personally wouldn't.
Sorry for the long post, but i went through this trying to persuade my interviewer to let me do 5 A-levels.
Hope this helps, Katie
