    I currently do History, Politics, Business and ICT at AS Level.
    I would like to go to UEA and their typical offer is ABB, however at AS i think i will only be able to achieve ABBC the C being in History. So should i drop History and take up the other three instead or would it be better to have History A-Level and risk only getting ABC at A2.

    AS is not the same weighting as A2. You don't necessarily need to get ABB at AS to apply for an ABB A level requirement. If you get ABC at AS you'll be on track to get ABB at A2. Many people improve during A2 purely due to the motivation to get into university. Obviously if you were to get ABBC at AS it would give you a better chance, loosely, to then get the same at A2 but carrying on with ABC at AS is fine to get an offer for ABB.
