    Currently, I would do biology, maths (I have already done FSMQ) and geography at AS and then A2. However, I am worried that only 3 A-Levels (and no additional ASs (confusing with the switch to linear A-Levels)) would leave me at a disadvantage
    I am also concerned that if I end up disliking a subject, I am unable to drop it after the first year
    I work hard, and I am predicted all As and A*s at GCSE (with one B in art), but I'm unsure if adding a further AS would be detrimental to my success in other subjects (particularly as I've been struggling with my mental health)
    And if I do choose to take a 4th AS, what would be a good subject to take in conjunction with my other 3? I have no clue what I want to study at uni
    Thank you!

    Id take another subject to AS, you may even decide to keep going with it. But I don't think it would put you to a disadvantage, even if it did you could take an EPQ.
