    So I got my results today for my AS. I got AAB. I was over the moon. I was expecting BDD or the like. I have been wondering whether or not it would be beneficial for me to take up an extra AS? I'm only doing three AS levels for my first year as I had to retake my maths gcse. I mean, the only subject that I would enjoy is film, but it's coursework based and it might effect a lot of my other subjects, two of which are heavily coursework based, like History and Media, which I am taking.

    I was planning on taking an extra AS for the extra UCAS points if I got all C's or something at AS. But now there doesn't seem much point as even if I did do worse next year, I'll still get around C's or something- enough to get me into uni, and I only need 240 points to get into one of my choices.

    Would it be worth it? Or should I go without the extra pressure and just carry on the three I got good grades on?
