    I've decided to do 3 A Levels (English lit, Geography and Economics), because when i did triple science (GCSE) I majorly regretted it by the end, because it was too much to learn after I forgot all of the unit 1's at the end of the 2 years and my grades were not as good as I knew I was capable of.. I guess that's more about how much you study.
    But anyway, this made me realise that it's probably more worth it to do less but get better grades out of it.

    It depends on how much effort you'll put from day 1 to get the grades you want.
    I'm also interested to see what else other people will say, because I don't really know much about what uni's prefer in the end.

    Take three if you want. Psychology AS was never going to make or break your application. With the new A Level reforms, taking three will become the norm at some schools.

    If the courses you're lookin at only require 3 a levels, then its probably better to get good grades in 3 than okay grades in 4.

    Depends what you think your academic capacity is … better to do 3 A Levels and get As than 4 and get Bs xx
