    So all my exams are over. And i haven't done too well, i think i got;

    Economics - A (Unit 1 - A, Unit 2 - A)
    Business - A/B (Unit 1 - C/D, Unit 2 - A)
    Law - A/B (Unit 1 - A, Unit 2 - B)
    Maths - C/B (C1 - D, C2 - B/A, S1 - A)

    I really enjoy all 4 subjects and because i haven't done too well, i'm pretty motivated for next year.

    If i carry on all 4 i was going to resit C1 and Law02 to get A's in them.
    I planning to apply for oxford to study law, which i only need AAA.

    Is it advisable to carry on four? Also has anyone got any tips?

    when you get Much worse grades than you thought you would, that would indicate what subject to drop. And for the love of gowd drop one.
    Also Law is a useless A-level, even law school dont want law A-level. But if i were you ill drop maths.

    I think you really should continue with Economis (as u got very good grades) and Maths ( cool subject)
    Definitely choose something different from Business (There are plenty of other interesting subjects)

    Hey

    I have just finished taking all 4 of my subjects to A2 - I did all social sciences - this was my original plan in your position last year, but my results meant it didn't really make much sense to drop anything (164 UMS, 161 UMS, 157 UMS, 141 UMS) and the subject I got 141 in was the only facilitating one I took.

    I've found taking 4 a challenge, but because I don't have a job it was more than manageable, and advised to me by my teachers. I retook a unit in the 157 subject, hopefully meaning I'll have 3 A's on results day so I get a scholarship to my firm .

    Just do what is best for you, and listen to the advice you get given - having 4 A2's allows for a lot more leeway if a coursework element or exam unit doesn't go so well.
