    Hello,
    I'm still undecided on my A levels. (Cutting it short i know). At A level i really do not want to take 4 A levels instead i want to do 3 A levels, Extended project and Work experience/ Volunteering. The A Levels i would be taking is: Maths, Further Maths, Economics and i would extend economics. However after looking into the LSE guidance i learnt that sometimes taking Maths and F. Maths isn't competitive enough to get into the group 4 degrees as quoted from their website "However, the combination of Maths, Further Maths plus one other subject is considered insufficiently broad for many of our programmes". To get into Mathematics or Economics and management at Oxbridge do you think this will still be the case? If so, do you think i should just take 4 A levels and scrap the EPQ as my college will not all 4 and an EPQ. Moreover, If i had to take 4 which should the fourth be?
    Regards
