    I've not voted because I need more information.

    I think it depends on circumstances and subject. I did one of my A levels self taught and it was very worthwhile. I also think intensive A levels can be a good idea but perhaps if you do less A level subjects over that academic year.

    This year I'm going to do 4 units from Maths A-levels. I want to do overall 4 A-levels (Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Economics), but currently I don't live in UK.

    Do 3 full A levels and an AS. Don't bother with doing 4 full A levels there is barely any advantage to it.
