    Long story short, I'm currently doing biology, chemistry, maths and further maths at AS level. Im really behind in further maths (I don't think I'll be able to get a grade). I was wondering if dropping it now and only doing 3 AS levels, whether it will affect my chances of getting into a university. I want to study Chemistry (Mchem) at university. I'm hoping to go to a fairly good university (Loughborough, Manchester or a Russell group university). Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    Your application will definitely be less competitive. Why not look into doing AS further maths over two years?

    I'm choosing my A-Levels right now, and most places are recommending for me to only choose 3 subjects, since 'that's all that unis are looking for nowadays'

    I did Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Further Maths, Econ initially
    dropped Econ before the AS exam (so it never shows up on anything)
    got ABDU respectively
    Did A2 dropped Further and got ADU
    Took a gap year and retook AS + A2 in a year with A*A*B predicted
    Got offers from Durham, Warwick and Nottingham for comp sci and got A*AB in the end

    Nah, as long as you've covered everything by this September, it'll just be revision, recapping and past papers for Y13.
