    Hi, I'm thinking of taking Maths, Physics, Level 3 Engineering and English Lit. Does anybody think this will be too much work? I'm not majorly intelligent but I have managed A*, A's and B's in these subjects so far at GCSE level.

    Yes it will work, though for continuity Level 3 Engineering may not exactly correlate well with your other alevels, but your Maths,Physics and English Lit are very respectable, you need to just work hard, understand the maths/physics, past papers solomon papers and just dedicate time to these exams. I'm not majorly intelligent either but with hard work got from a B in maths gcse to 98ums in my first exam so its possible with hard work. (for the record I do maths, further maths, history and economics)

    Most people take 4 AS levels. As long as you give each subject time and effort i'm sure you'll be fine. A*, A's and B's are fantastic grades, well done.

    If you get an A/A* at GCSE in maths and physics you should be ok at A-level. I can't speak for the other two, sorry.

    Most people take 4 as levels in the first year, so you should be fine and be able to cope well with the workload. You will still be able to drop one of your subjects at the end of year 12 if you wanted to (for example your weakest subject).
    Maths, physics and english lit are also respected subjects. Like someone else said, im not sure how well level 3 engineering will go with your other subjects, but id still go for it, especially if you wanted to go into that area of work. You will be fine.
