    So i'm currently doing 4 As levels; Maths, Economics, Physics and Biology. I want to do accounting and finance at university (Hoping to get into LSE or Bath). I dont see my self getting above a C in biology , so would i be better off dropping Biology and just start focusing in getting an A in Maths, Economics and Physics.And would having 3 AS levels instead of 4 lessen my chance into getting into Bath or LSE?

    Need Advice!!

    According to the websites the universities are only looking for 3 A levels, but I know that some like to see a 4th AS level. I'm not an expert on LSE or Bath so hopefully either someone will come along who is or you could just get in touch with the universities yourself if you're concerned. I would always say that focussing on your three main A levels is the best idea, but I don't have experience of dropping an AS level mid-year. I dropped mine at the end of my AS year but getting a C in that AS level didn't seem to harm my university applications, so there is an argument for you carrying on with biology until the end of the year but if you feel it's negatively impacting your other subjects and you're unable to fulfil your potential in them because of time spent on biology I suppose you could justify dropping it now. Have you spoken with your teachers to ask what they recommend?
