    I am doing four a-levels in Bio, Chem, French and History. I got 3As and a C in Chemistry and Physics (I have dropped Physics) at AS and I want to do medicine at university. I am thinking of applying to Edinburgh, Sheffield, Cardiff or HYMS and Liverpool University.
    My predicted grades are all As. Should I carry on with a fourth Alevel or drop it?
    If I drop it after 15/10 I'll have to notify the unis I apply to by email - will this look bad?

    Thanks - I'm just really confused about what to do :/

    Drop the 4th A Level no university requires 4 A Levels not even Oxbridge. I don't think it looks bad if anything it's sensible and shows focus.
