    Hi everyone, I have just started year 12 this month and I have picked Maths,Chemistry,Psychology and Biology. I am thinking of dropping Psychology and continuing with the other three as it would be easier to manage the workload and study in depth. I will also be doing the EPQ which is equivalent to one AS and you can get the same ucas points for it. I want to do Medicine and I feel that by doing 3 AS levels I might be disadvantaged? Has anyone done the same subjects as me or been in the same position? Do you think I should drop the subject or continue it for year 12?

    What do you think I should do? Any help and advice will be appreciated.

    4 subjects isn't a huge workload even though it will feel like it, and if you flop one then you can drop it for A2 and continue with the other 3 which is helpful

    Yes it is fine, most schools are only doing 3 now due to the reform.

    I'm doing Physics, Maths and ICT which are difficult (not ICT) and stressful but I feel it gives me more time to revise and do well; I don't wanna do 4 and get bad results when I can do three and get good results

    Oh ok

    Most people in my school are doing 3 + an EPQ, but I had the option to do Further Maths as a 4th and not do the EPQ which is what I've done
