[QUOTE=Junaid16]If you wanted to take 5, your college will probably expect almost straight A*s and A's[/QUO
Not true mate, I'm taking Further Maths and Triple science and I only got 4 A's 4 B's and 6 C's, however I attended a terrible school with very very poor grades so because my A's were in my core subjects and I beat almost everyone im my year from my school they happily let me take 5.
P.S I attend Solihull Sixth Form and also 5 AS levels are not a big difference to 4 if you're not taking further maths.

Would really like to study Law at Uni; I'm aiming for Oxbridge.
I'm sure about English Lit, History and Maths but am unsure about my fourth subject, I was thinking either Law or Economics. I know some see Law as less academic than other subjects but I really feel it would help me out. Will oxbridge look down on me for this choice? Bearing in mind that I'll still be doing 3 other very traditional subjects.

Nahh, by soon I mean I've got college open days to go to next month and then the applications after that.
What did you think of Economics? I don't really know what to expect from the course...

I'm thinking of taking these subjects for a-levels too!
Are they challenging? I'm definitely taking bio and chem, then either maths or physics or both or history and maths/physics. Our school only lets you take 4 a levels unless you're like a geniusss.
The only reason i'm allowed to do 5 btw is because my maths'll be done by the end of year 12, and I need to be able to drop a subject after that!
Wow, physics and maths are pretty much the same (aside from theory physics) so it depends on what you want to do really :P

I thinking at the moment;
then can't decide between Biology or Physics
It'll probably change a million times during this year though

I feel like the only person at my school who hasn't changed options since September:
History AS (Y)
just my two cents.

You'll struggle with 5 especially since ones a full blown a-level. my advice would be to do 3 as and maths a2, then pick up the 4th as in your second year.
just my two cents.
It's kinda nice at the moment because there are quite a few of us doing 5 because of the maths so we're all helping each other
Congrats on your GCSEs btw!
