    Will doin 4 A-levels rather than three be of any use AFTER university? I just wondered whether it would be good to drop a subject having recieved the offer I wanted.

    I'd really appreciate any graduate know how too.

    Thanks in advance for any feedback

    Unless it's a language, probably not...

    I am taking 4 A levels and I found that it makes all my subjects easier somehow?

    But I think on a CV it will look far better than 3?

    I think your degree classification would be much more important than the number of your A levels. Also, you can't drop an A level without first informing UCAS and your universities - they have the right to withdraw the offer, even if the A level isn't included in it.
