Hi. I have decided to take iMedia as a 4th option for year 13. I am doing maths, physics and computing next year, and so my tutor suggested I take iMedia as it has a lighter workload so it looks like I'm going to be doing it.

she assured me that it was a good choice and my a levels will be enough to get into uni. However will it put me at a disadvantage to get into uni for computer science if I take an 'easy' fourth option? As opposed to a more difficult but AS level qualification?

4th options don't really matter that much. They're fourth options - unis only really care about the main three and how well you do in those. Plus, iMedia is quite related so it'll mesh well. So long as it won't get in the way of your other subjects, i'd go for it!

Thanks, that's really encouraging.

No Uni wants more than 3 A levels - so you don't need to do anything on top of that, ie. it wont give you any advantage when applying to Uni. Do an extra subject if it interests you, but be careful that doing this doesn't 'dilute' the time you have to spend on the main subjects.

Don't worry too much about the subject you choose as a 4th. I'd suggest doing a subject you'd just enjoy and get decent results with.
