I have just started year 12. I am currently doing maths, business, politics and computer science however I want to drop computer science. My school want me to do another subject to replace this however I think that the workload will be too much and my other subjects may suffer if I do 4. What would your advice be?
I'm a reasonably intelligent student (A*,8 A's, 1 C and 1D at GCSE) but I don't have the motivation to do hours and hours of revision, I'm not a hard-worker. I have been told by people who have done A levels that 4 subjects will be too much for me which is why I'm considering dropping down to 3. I would have to do an extra qualification called ASDAN which is worth 8 ucas points but this is only 2 hours a week. What is your advice? Would you do 3 or 4?
The subjects I'm considering if I do 4 are Law, Economics and ICT.
Edit: I would like to go to a good university such as Durham to do either business or accounting and finance
Should I do 3 or 4 subjects in AS? Watch

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

Do three if you can. I did 4 last year and kinda regret it. I did maths, Bio, Chem and Psychology (I was always going to drop this, pretty much the reason i chose it). And come results day i got BBBC B in Psychology and C in Chem. I dropped Psychology left with BBC which does not look very appealing, I feel like if i dropped it earlier on I would have done better in Chem, now my predicted grades are suffering and Uni options limited. Even though I really enjoyed the subject.
