    HI guys,

    I am starting sixth form in September and need help with choosing my A levels.

    At the moment I have chosen: Maths, Physics and Biology.

    I am not sure whether I should do a 4th A level, if i was to do a fourth it would be in chemistry.

    Some people in my school and doing 3 subjects for A level and an EPQ.

    What would you recommend?
    If i were to take 4, i would probably drop one of the subjects at the end of the year, I am just concerened about the amount of work from each subject.

    Do the fourth A level instead of EPQ, it gives you more flexibility in A2 incase you hate one of your subjects, you can't really predict this. Everyone at my sixth form did four A levels, it's not that much work. EPQ was more hassle than it was worth, Uni's don't include it in there offers, it only adds some academic bonus if you wanted to do medicine.
