so with the new law, AS has been scrapped... i was wondering if i should get 3 alevels or should i get 4?
Would it inhibit my chances of a top uni?
is it worth the risk of more stress with 4 or is 3 okay?

In short no it wont. The vast majority of courses, if not all, at top unis require only 3 a levels. However obviously if you have 3As and someone else has 4As then ceteris paribus they will have an advantage, whilst I think the majority of Oxbridge applicants have 4 a levels. But I would advise against it as it will probably lead to a worse overall performance, unless of course you get 4A*s. Good Luck

Take 4. I say this because I would be annoyed at having studied a subject for an entire year without anything to show for it. Might as well go all the way.
If your sixth form does AS exam though, then I would advise you to drop a subject.
