    Hey!

    I'm currently studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics, Computing and Critical Thinking at AS Level. My aim is to go Oxford to study Maths or Physics.

    However I'm not sure which subjects to do for A2, and whether doing 4 would give me an advantage. The 2 options I am currently debating are:

    1) Studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Computing to A2.

    2) Studying Maths, Further Maths and Physics to A2. Along with the Extended Project Qualification and the Advanced Certificate in Spoken English.

    My overall aim is to achieve A*AA/A*A*A, but both options above would give me around 600 UCAS points.

    I'm not sure which option would be better and which would require more work, as well as which one would be more highly regarded. Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hey, for maths/ physics degrees only 3 A-levels would be necessary.

    Those would be maths, FM and physics. This is better as there's less unnecessary stress, AND you can do the EPQ

    Don't forget you'll have the MAT to study for, and you may also need to do STEP as well depending on where else you apply. Ultimately, you don't need any more than three A-levels, so it depends on how much you currently enjoy Computing.
