    I was just wondering if this is a good mixture of subjects? Also if i dropped chemistry would univiersities mind that i have economics and ict as they may be considered as easy? Or crossover subjects? Finally would they be easy to get high grades in?

    Those are a decent mix. Economics isn't regarded as soft, but I.T is. Second, if you're basing your choices on difficulty alone, you're going to have a bad time. What subject do you want to study at university? If you want to study a humanity like Geography, you'll be better off changing one for an essay subject like History or English. I'd recommend doing Maths, Chemistry and Economics for A2, as both Chemistry and Maths are facilitating, while Economics is only partial to that.

    You don't have to do a fourth AS if you don't want to, check with your sixth form. However, it's an extra qualification. If you want to check with RG unis, just search for 'informed choices', which will tell you the most suitable subjects for accounting and finance.
