I want to ideally go to Cambridge, Bath or Durham to study natural sciences/chemistry. I'm currently doing Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths and Resistant Materials and predicted A in all this year.
I don't really want to do 4 with an epq as i feel it'll be too much work
Am I better off doing phy, chem, maths and f maths or just doing phy, chem and maths with an EPQ focused on science.
Am I better off doing 4 a levels or 3 with EPQ? watch

Drop resistant materials and take up the EPQ

4 A levels is a lot, but if you're predicted As/ A*s you might be more likely to get an offer from Cambridge with 4 than with 3. But you don't want to take 4 and get lower grades in them than if you took 3. I'm pretty sure if you take further maths, for maths and science courses at Cambridge you need to get an A* in that, which is extremely hard. I'm not sure what happens if you don't have that as an A level.
Talk to a careers advisor. But if you aren't adamant you want to go to Cambridge, focus on 3 A levels and you're much more likely to do well.
