    4 months into my history course and we are really far behind. all weve done is learn what came up in last years exam - theres another 90% of the course to go Im wondering whether dropping it is an option if i want to got to a good med school (not applying to oxbridge). Also I hate the course with a passion.
    I have 10 A stars at GCSE and not sure whether it would be better to have a really poor AS or no AS at all. considering imperial/ucl/nottingham and other unis with integrated courses. some advice would be great thanks.

    i'd say you don't need the 4th AS as a lot of colleges now take 3 with the new system like sciences. Im not 100% certain, but I only did 3, because my college only allows 3 at a time
