    Anyone else doing this? I'm doing maths biology chemistry and history and am revising thoroughly for them all apart from history. In fact I don't think I'll bother with history until a couple of weeks before the exam.

    Focusing more on subjects you find more difficult? Preposterous! Truly absurd

    I actually find them easier than history, but I've still got to work at them, it's because they're better for what I want to do at uni.

    Don't neglect it too much unless you find it really easy (or you're in your A2 year and you only need 3 A-levels for your offer - but I'm assuming you're doing AS). Sure you might need maths/biology/chemistry more but other applicants will have put more effort all round. AAAC looks a lot worse than AAAA even if the C doesn't matter (speaking in hypotheticals - I have no idea what you're aiming for).

    What are you wanting to do at uni?

    Pharmacy so I only need 3 a-levels, I'm planning to drop history at A2 anyway.
