    Hello guys,

    I'm looking at applying for Cambridge to study computer science.
    I am currently doing my AS levels, studying Maths, Further Maths, German And Physics. I am also doing an EPQ and General Studies.

    I feel German is a high workload subject, and may affect my performance in A2.
    Would I be at a disadvantage if I drop German, and apply to Cambridge with only 3 levels opposed to 4? With dropping German, I would be aiming for 3 A*s at A2 level, and an A in german AS. Are these grades suitable to get into cambridge? I understand everyone says cambridge only ask for 3 A levels, but do they not look for more capable students?

    Thanks, Tom
