    Hey guys, currently I'm doing maths, geography, psychology and business studies. I'm planning to
    do law or geography at Oxford.

    Do you guys think it will put me at a disadvantage if I drop maths at this point? The reason is I can spare more time to do more
    reading as well as working on my EPQ.

    Thank you so much!!!!

    I would recommend that you continue with Maths, because universities other than Oxford often insist on 4 AS levels as a minimum.

    Business studies is regarded as a soft subject by some universities, therefore it may be in your best interests to continue with maths which is very highly respected, especially for a university like Oxford.

    I think Oxford would want you to have done 4 AS subjects. It's not advisable to drop your "most facilitating" subject in any case...

    Oxford is fine with you only having three normally. However, I'm not sure they'd count business studies as valid enough. Maths will look much better on an application.
