    Should I do 4 A Levels + EPQ? I want to go to a good university e.g. UCL, Imperial, maybe even Cambridge.

    I am currently doing Maths, Further Maths, Economics, Physics, Computer Science and am on track for 4As and 1 B (in C.Sci). However I didnt meet my expectations for GCSEs and only got AAAAAABBBC. (predicted - A*A*A*A*A*A*AAAB - i.e. 1 grade lower in all subjects to what i was supposed to get). I was also planning to do STEP if I could because I want to do Maths with Economics at University or just Economics.
    I appreciate any responses

    If you want to. But only 3 A levels are necessary. You want to maximise your grades so it would be inadvisable to do extra A levels if it will mean you won't do as well. A*A*A*a is better than A*ABbc. It is unlikely you'll get an offer including STEP, for economics.
