    So I want to do four a-levels. Here are the subjects I want to do and the gcse grades I'm probably going to get:
    Maths - A* (Already got)
    Economics - A*
    Physics - B
    Biology - A
    The thing is my school have this thing where you can only do 4 a levels if you have a point average of 50 (mine is 48.7). So they 'recommended' that I only do 3. But I think my grades are good enough to do 4 and the subjects that are dragging my point average down are unrelated to my a level options (French, PE and Computing).
    So do you think I'm good enough to do 4 a levels with these results.

    Yes of course. I wouldn't advise doing it though. I regret it. With 3 subjects you have much more frees to socialise/work. And your life in sixth form is less of a headache.

    I think so , but A level is completely different to GCSE, and getting A's and A*'s does help, but overall i dont think it matters that much.
    If you really think doing four a levels is going to benefit you for university then go for it.
    but at the moment universities are only looking for 3 high graded a levels so i suggest stick with 3 and do an epq project along with it
    but depending on what you want to study at university and whether if you want to keep your options open, go for four
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
