Should I do 3 or 4 a levels? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Basically in AS i got 3As and 1B in biology maths sociology and chemistry respectively. I want to go into pharmacy and realised that the offer requirements from places like Kings and LSOP were like AAA or AAB. This means that they dont really care if you dont do an extra a level. Im definitely keeping biology chemistry and maths but the only reason i decided to keep sociology was because i got a very high UMS (195/200) and thought it would be an easy A*. Im wondering in the long run wouldnt it be better to do 3 A levels and try and get A* in them instead of doing 4 A levels where realistically id only be able to get 2A* (maths and sociology) and 2As. Any ideas on what i should do?

    do 3. and do the ones you did the best in. i would say unless you got all As in AS, you are taking a big risk of getting lower than expected marks.
