I read on a sheet and it said if I get x amount of points I will do 3 a levels and one A2 level and if I get z amount of points I will do 4 alevels (no A2) What are the differences or are they the same? which is better? 4 a levels one has higher amount of points required so it is hardeR?

With exception to the new specifications:
A levels are made of two parts – the first year of the course is called AS. The second year is called A2.
You can do just the first year and get an AS certificate. This is basically half an A level.
You can do both the AS year and the A2 year and get an A level certificate. [A level = AS + A2]
In your question, I think you mean AS instead of A2. So it sounds like you'd either be doing 3 A levels (AS + A2) and 1 AS (the first year) or 4 whole A levels (AS + A2).
