    I'm doing Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and General Studies but I'm not counting GS in this as it's not accepted by many places.

    I'm thinking of dropping physics due to a general loathing for the subject, I have 45% attendence in it, which would leave me with Biology, Chemistry, Maths and General Studies for AS and then I'd continue with them all for A2 and I MAY do an AS next year as well.

    Obviously I don't have to do a 4th AS but I'm wondering how it may appear to universities if I don't. Would I still be able to apply to any university for any course related to my subject with Biology, Chemistry, Maths and General Studies for AS and A2?

    I'd say it would depend on the course you're applying for, but on the whole universities only ask for 3 A2s anyway

    :hmmm: not too sure on this one
    most people in my college who took 3 AS's this year will take it to A2 this autumn along with a new AS subject, so perhaps a 4th AS will help coz it will open more doors for work/universities
