    I'm only a couple of weeks into school and I seriously don't think I'm going to be able to handle doing 4 as levels (at least well anyway) I'm currently doing psychology, sociology, English lit and classics but want to drop classics. Do you think there's any chance of me getting into university with only three as levels?

    Yes, you're not going to damage your chances by taking 3 AS levels. I did and got offers from four good uni's (only applied to four) and met all of their offers, so don't worry. You'll be fine.

    ETA: [Not to mention that Classics is not a very popular (read: required/asked for/recommended) subject, so it's even more of a non-issue]

    Before you drop one, I'd double check units websites for courses you are interested in just to check they don't require 4. I'd imagine you should be fine though.

    I know plenty of people (including myself) who only took 3 A Levels at AS. The only downside is if you don't do too well in one of them at AS, you can't drop it as you'd only have 2 A Levels left. However you'll probably find you'll generally do better doing 3 because you'll have more free periods to focus on less subjects
