Finished AS, achieved
Further Maths- A
Taking an EPQ would mean dropping chemistry for A2. I want to study mechanical engineering and I would like your opinion on whether or not it is a good idea. Should I take it or continue with chemistry (try to improve my grade).
Will it enhance my application?
Is it worth the time?
Will 4 A levels look better than 3 + EPQ?
What was your experience?
If not, can you suggest an alternative?
Any advice is much appreciated
EPQ or not?! (Oxbridge) Watch

Personally, I would sack off chemistry.
Aim for smashing those 3 Alevels. Particularly going for an A* in maths.
Use the rest of your time to develop a skill that is relevant to Mech Eng, a project, work experience, maybe an EPQ. Get something to bolster your personal statement and make you stand out.
I know it's difficult but I think some relevant work experience can go a thousand miles. Much better than a 4th Alevel.

I think either option is valid, but would personally drop the B. The last thing you want is to be overworked and not achieve any offer you might get.
