    My college is making us take 3 AS subjects instead of 4, and i really want to get into Oxford or any other top university so obviously having 4 AS is better than 3.
    What should i do about this?

    Ultimately, you can goto any UK university with 3 A-levels (offers for many courses at Oxford are AAA).
    Universities will obviously though take into consideration any fourth A-level (or AS) and will get you some points but it would not disadvantage anyone from a public school for instance, who couldn't take a fourth subject.

    Or you can take an EPQ? It counts like an AS-level and you can even mention it in your UCAS application which will definitely get you the 'extra points' lost in not having a fourth one

    Hope you find a solution!

    Thank you! that helped.
    I was also wondering if taking psychology or further maths as my 4th choice would affect my application? Many people tell me that psychology is an easy choice and that further maths is not considered by many universities..?
