    I want to study CS at uni. Right now I'm doing Further Maths, Maths ,Physics and Chemistry. I feel like dropping chemistry now, I know it's not necessary to do chemistry but will this deter my chances of getting into top uni like Cambridge or Imperial. Is at alright if I do 3 subjects for AS??

    It would be better to do 4 at AS because most applicants to the top universities will have 4 AS subjects. Try and stick it out until the end of y12, you'll be fine to drop it then.

    most universities ask for maths further pure and chemistry. Dropping chemistry would not be a good idea

    Since your school offers 4, it would be wise not to drop it until you have an AS in it.
