    Has anyone done this? I'm in year 12, I didn't really put much thought into my A level choices, I do English literature, Media and Religious studies. I'm now really interested in doing either Marketing or Advertising at university, and therefore think a Business studies AS level will be beneficial. I'm not finding the workload too tough currently but that might all change at A2. Do you think this is a good move?

    I did, well... I took Mathematics, English, Biology and History at AS. I dropped Maths at the end of the year and in an attempt to get more UCAS points, I picked up French. I didn't find it hard but after three weeks into year 13 the workload became too much and I dropped the additional AS.

    If you've done business GCSE, AS is literally the same thing with a bit more application, you don't even learn new content till unit 2 so if you think you can handle your other a levels you should be alright.
