You don't have to pick 4, Its optional. I chose Psychology as my 4th and the rest same as you. I am not doing dentistry. I think it will be better if you do three as you can focus properly on your subjects because right now I think of psychology as a distraction. Like when I got an important test for one of the other three, They give me long homeworks.

History has a better reputation however do whatever you think you could get a better grade in especially for AS. if ur applying for a competitive course like dentistry then a 4th AS would be helpful

I'd say History because it's a lot more respected than Phycology

It doesn't matter. Pick what you wish. The grades in your science subjects is what counts, not the prestige of your 4th a level.
And to all those saying history is more respected, you clearly don't know what you're talking about. That's coming from a person who studies history post grad. It's not a matter about "respect", it's about what dentistry course needs (the science a levels) and then what the OP is good at. The OP (if did history A level) isn't simply going to be picked over somebody with the same grades but with a psychology a level as their fourth subject.
Pick what you enjoy and will get the best grade in.Last edited by AlwaysWatching; 10-11-2015 at 22:24.
