    Im currently taking 4 AS levels:
    Physics
    Maths
    Computing
    History

    I want to drop history as it doesn't fit with what i want to do and also i don't like it at all.

    I want to study aerospace engineering at uni.

    Haha, you are like my twin. I am doing A2 and i am applying for aerospace engineering this year!

    My AS subjects were : Maths,Physics,Computer Science, Economics
    My A2 are: Maths,Physics,Computer Science

    There is no point in dropping it. You might as well give it your best shot. I dropped economics after recieving my as results. I feel that would be better for you. Just incase something happens to any of your other subjects

    to be honest if anything, drop history. i do 3 A levels (one of which is history) and it takes up so much of my time. i wouldnt cope if i was doing 4 subjects, but that's relative, you could do much better than me.

    LSE wants four A levels, if you want to apply there.

    Pretty sure it's fine now since many/most schools only offer the option of 3 A Levels.

    I'd personally drop History and maybe do the EPQ on aerospace engineering? The EPQ has the same value as an AS level and will be relevant to the course you want to study at university

    Many now only offer 3 subjects, so you would be okay. Especially if you feel history isn't as relevant and would take time away from your other subjects.
