    Basically what it says in the title... Maths is by far my weakest subject out of all the A-levels I take (English, History, Latin and Maths). It's also the only one I still have an AS exam for. If I do badly in it this summer how much does this affect my chances of being called to interview, bearing in mind I want to do English?

    .... not at all. You're applying for English. If you do badly in maths and then drop it won't affect your application at all. Try dropping it now though if you can, then you can focus on your other subjects and won't have to declare a bad grade. Also, check the college you're applying to doesnt require 4 as levels, as I know Churchill wants 4 for Law, so perhaps it's worth just checking.
