    I want to take another A-Level in Year 13. Is this allowed? (I will probably take Psychology/Further Maths, which is better?)

    Normally, people pick 4 in the AS and drop one in their A2s, have you considered this option?

    My school won't let me take 4 A-levels in AS. Is it uncommon but accepted to take 4 in A2 and 3 in AS?

    You can't just do the second half. You can take the AS on its own or you can take the full A level. You could take 3 A levels over 2 years and then pick up an extra AS in Year 13 but it would be a very odd thing to do.

    Whats the point ? universities only look at 3 A-levels anyway, doing more doesn't put you at much of an advantage at all, compared to doing other things like work experience or extra reading to show interest and insight into your chosen degree path. This is the same advice I have gotten from multiple admission tutors including one at Cambridge.

    I want to go to Oxford but apparently you need to do 4 A-Levels to go there.

    No you don't, look on their website, no course asks for more than 3 A-levels.

    Heya Everybody! How's it going? Im just a student passing on from GCSE to AS Level and have chosen to pursue with Maths, Chemistry, Biology and RE in Northern Ireland. I just wanted to ask you guys about revision and study. Last year I made my notes in a journal per subject and it turned out to be very effective. But I was wondering whether it would be better to make notes on single sheets and slot them into a file per subject. I wanted to ask your opinion(for those who have maybe done both, or have/are already doing their A Levels)
    Many thanks,
    Revisionlad
