How do I know if I can manage 4 A Levels? Watch


    (Original post by Goldfish4343)
    And which one to drop? I am thinking of English Literature, History, Law and possibly maths.
    Think of 2 you love and prepare on them during the summer, lightly read on the other 2 by then you should know which you like most and least, during the first few weeks give your best in all of them and if you feel you’re not enjoying one drop it

    Fair enough. It really isn't common and becoming less common with the new A-level structure.

    Law isn't pointless. It's a myth. There are a lot of people who have taken law a level and gave gotten into top universities.
    It's probably fine as a 4th subject. I wouldn't take it otherwise.
