Well - if you have no clue, you should probably drop what is least respected (I have no information on that kind of stuff - you'll have to get it from someone else, sorry!), or what you enjoy least!

Congrats on your 4 As!

Well Media Studies and Business Studies I know aren't accepted at LSE, unless you have say Media and then two 'traditional' subjects, eg. History, English Lit and Media. I think most unis accept Sociology and Psychology but I'm not sure!

I think Media is prob the least respected of them so perhaps you should drop that. Really depends on what is your fave subject though and what unis you are thinking of applying to.

media is definitely the least respected, although I wouldn't base your choice solely on that. If there's one you enjoy less take that into consideration, or if there's one where you only just scraped an A, while with the others you got fairly comfortable A's, you may want to consider that.

Which unis are you thinking of applying? You're actually doing four "soft" subjects, so unis might not like that... though you got four As, which is good

I kept on all 4, It gives you a better chance of getting the required grades and shows dedication. Plus, I figured it was just as much work taking on another AS. If you got 4 As, I'd keep all of them on and if you decide you want to drop one later on you can (as long as you do before you apply to unis)

In terms of respectability, from most respected to least respected, they probably go psychology, sociology, business studies, media studies, but you said you enjoy media and that's the most important thing. Just drop the one you enjoy least and/or got the lowest A in.

Maybe start with all four, and then if it gets too much then drop one. If you're finding it hard to drop one because you enjoy them all then you'll probably be motivated to work hard to keep on top of everything.

Well you're doing all the so-called 'easy' ones do I personally would keep all 4, especially if you want to do law. Most decent law tutors hate your subjects and so having one extra, and potentially standing out would be advantagous.
