    Currently i'm think of studying :
    Triple maths (or double maths at minimum)
    Triple science
    Mandarin(Not really studying , just taking exams)

    So a couple of questions :
    1.Is triple maths worth it? Does it give you that much of an advantage?
    2.How is the work load going to be?
    3.If i'm also considering to take Philosophy,History,Economics is there any way to fit those in?

    if you're thinking of going to uni and you need all of those A levels you should do them. otherwise don't try it, it sounds like suicide.

    I hope you're trolling. If not, you are on an academic suicide mission.

    No. I assume you will be going to university after, so when looking for employment, they will look at your degree, rather than how many A Levels you have. It's definitely not worth the stress either. Better to have 3/4 high grades than 7 middle grades (assuming doing so many will affect your grades).

    1) I think not. Just stick with double at most. If you wanted to go into maths, go for triple, if you think you can take it, and have your life set on maths.

    2) A lot!

    3) Lol, no. You really need to learn how to choose.

    There is no logic in taking 7 A levels when most university courses ask for 3.

    Even if you had time to study for 7 A levels and get optimum marks, it clearly shows you had little time for extra- curricular activities (or even a social life), and this may hinder you to when applying.

    No! Just No!

    It will not help your grades and only hinder. Some will be wasted effort. As a uni or employer I would at that as someone who does not know how to prioritise and liable to undertake too much for no reason.

    *there is a disclaimer here. For a Postgrad I one did 14 Ungrad modules in 1 year. However, this was the course not my course. I aced it though and it felt damn good

    My Chinese friend was advised not to take Manderin A level, because, as she was fluent, some unis wouldn't count it so it wasn't worth the effort.

    Or at least, that's what she told us.

    A guy done 22 in one year and got 21 A's (before the A*), so nah, 7 is not too bad and doable in comparison. You just gotta work really hard.
