    I want to study finance or something similar at a university in London although I'm unsure about one of my choices for AS and A level. I've decided to study Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Economics and Business Studies. Despite this, some people I know are only taking 3 subjects for AS and A Level and I was thinking about dropping Business Studies and therefore allowing more time to focus on the other three for the whole two years giving me more chance to achieve the grades needed for universtiy. Do you think this is the right decision or should I take all four for two years?

    Check any universities you would like to go to and see if any f them require 4 AS levels - a lot of them don't.
    As someone who is studying A2 I can say that I regret doing 4 AS levels as I was disappointed with my results (having said that I could've worked harder).
    Sometimes it's better to do 3 subjects and get great grades in them than 4 and do average.
    However, if you're a hard worker you could do 4. I'm not sure how your school works but in mine we'd have Christmas/Winter exams. If you're still unsure maybe study 4 and see how you do in the exams and how you felt about the workload.

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
