    So, I'm currently applying for a really good post 16 near me, and they've said I can take 4 A-levels because I'll have 10 GCSE's by then (so far I've taken History PE and Spanish - all A grades)

    My predicted grades are all A*'s in chemistry physics and biology, 8 in maths and English Lang and Lit. I want to take physics chemistry, economics and further maths (which counts for 2 A levels). If i carry on the way I'm going, I'll meet all the requirements and be able to study all 4. My question is, is it worth it?

    I started taking 5 at the start of the year (Biology chemistry, physics, further maths) and i found that it was too much work for me, so ive dropped down to 4 and a half doing the AS further maths over two years. FOr comparision i did alright at GCSE (10 A* 2A)

    why do more work than you need do? 4 is enough and chill. it'll allow you more time to do something else (e.g. supercurricular reading) which will help more for a uni application
