Should I carry on with 4 alevels?

    • Thread Starter

    I'm planning on studying medicine at university, and would like to apply to the more competitive universities such as Imperial and also either UCL or Oxford. At the moment, I am studying Biology, Chemistry, History and Maths. My predictions are:
    Biology A
    Chemistry A
    History A*
    Maths A*

    My biology and chemistry predictions are not yet set in stone and will (hopefully) move up to an A*.

    I am not sure whether to drop History. Will dropping it put me at a disadvantage? There are a few students at my school applying to the same universities as me for medicine also who are studying 4 A levels.
    I know that studying history in addition to 3 A levels will be really stressful, at the same I would really love to get into a BMAT university.
