    Hola! I want to do either chemistry or maths at university and I was wondering if doing maths, further maths and chemistry AS levels will be fine. Doing 4 subjects would be too much for me as I have illnesses that make A-levels quite difficult.

    Hey, I'm only in year 11 but all the people who I have talked to in 6th form they tell me 3 subjects are a better idea as u have more time yo focus on them better than 4 subjects... those who do 3 rather than 4 seem to be doing better in those 3 subjects....

    Yeah, I definitely want to study either of those subjects. Cambridge, Bath, Warwick, Lancaster and I'm not sure about the rest.

    Do you know which universities have a problem with 3 AS levels?

    Suprisingly Cambridge is fine with it, I've spoken with the person in charge of admissions. They said that it's actually become increasingly common.

    Yeah but virtually every applicant has 4 AS. I would say do M, FM, Chem and physics at AS then drop phys at A2.

    Yeah, that's true. But then again I'm not doing 3 subjects out of choice, I couldn't do 4 subjects.

    Warwick is doubtful, as is Bath. Cambridge just don't even bother applying.

    I think I may be able to shift my subjects around so that I do maths, further maths and chemistry so hopefully I should be fine then. Do you study maths at uni?

    Doing 3 isn't enough for Cambridge, and most people applying to Warwick or even Bath for Maths will have 4.

    Doing 3 is enough. If you get A*A*A* in Maths, Further Maths and Physics say - and do two STEP papers and Get S's you are getting in - guaranteed. They give far less of a crap about a 4th A level than they do the grades in the primary three and STEP success. There is a reason the offer is based on three A levels - they only add a fourth grade requirement when you have told them you are taking four.

    I'm not that wise, but I have a couple of friends who did the combination of subjects you're thinking about and they all did great
