    Hello,

    At top russell group and the oxbridge universities, for courses such as students studying physics or maths, if you were only taking 3 a levels - and them being Maths, Further Maths and Physics, would you be at a disadvantage because they're all fairly similar and not a large workload as appose to a student taking 4 a levels?

    I really doubt it, I have friends who did exactly the same 3 A levels as you and it didn't make any difference to the universitys they got accepted by to those who did 3/4 varied A levels applying to the same course as them

    Nope. 3 A-levels are absolutely fine.
