    Hi

    For applicants for this year I was wanting to know if people were doing 3 or 4 A levels,

    With most subjects being linear. Are people just doing 3 A levels.

    In the past most people did 4 subjects, dropped one at AS

    So presented 3 A levels and 1 AS at the end of year 2.

    Unis seems to say that if college does not do AS levels then it does not matter.
    But was wondering what people out there were doing.

    Cheers

    Regardless of the reforms, my college does 3 A-levels & and an AS, unless you really want to do 4 A-levels.


    I personally did Maths, Physics, Chemistry, and Computer Science at AS. Continued all four into year 13, but found Computer Science pretty boring and tedious so I've dropped it and am now doing Maths, Physics, and Chemistry at A-level.

    I will be applying next year, and I'm doing 4 AS Levels:
    Maths, Chem, Bio, Geo

    Also achieved A in AS ICT, and will be doing an EPQ.

    Ahh

    Started the very same A levels.

    In Lower sixth.

    Only Maths has AS at end of year 1.

    Looking to drop Maths or Geography at end of year 1. However if dropped Geography, then I would not be able to do an AS in that.
    Only way I could get AS was if I dropped Maths, and continued with other 3.
    Alternatively do 4 next year, which I am thinking would be too much work.
