    Hi! I'll be starting my A levels in September, and I will definitely be doing Maths Further Maths and Physics. I see myself doing physics at uni, and I would like to do it at one of the top unis i.e Oxford. I have an option of taking either a fourth A level, or a fourth AS and an EPQ, (each are offered by different sixth forms respectively). At one school, I will do the fourth A level in either chemistry or economics, in the other, I will do the AS in either economics or computer science (the only two AS levels they offer), then I will aim to base my EPQ on a physics related topic. My question is, will I be disadvantaged when applying to uni (Oxford) if I don't do chemistry A level? I've heard it's really useful, however I'm not to sure if it's completely what I would like to do. Similarly, does doing economics put me at a disadvantage? Thanks in advance
