    Hi, there. You only need 3 A Levels for university as a minimum but with the new reforms in place, you need to check with your teacher/school whether you can drop one when you go into Year 13. Hope this helps. ^CoffeeAndPolitics

    AS levels are freestanding these days, so they still count on the tariff system, but schools can choose to do AS's or not, and so dropping to three A levels depends on individual schools and their policies.
