    I know this has been answered before in different ways, but I have a weird situation. With the new A Levels there is no AS anymore, and consequently I have a problem. When I was applying for A Levels I had initially put 4 A levels. Physics Maths Politics and History, however I later dropped History as I realised I didn't specifically need it for Law and therefore didn't want to make my life harder for no reason. (I didnt know if I wanted to do engineering or Law)
    Since then I have been looking more and more at engineering and realised that a lot of Unis want Further Maths for A Level with Physics and Maths. My school makes us take 4 if we are doing further maths. However I dont want to take further maths because:
    Im already quite far behind if I take it and have chapters to catch up on
    My school is doing 'flipped learning' so in physics the teachers dont actually teach us and the majority of my time is spent self teaching myself physics
    Im worried that if I take 4 subjects one of them probs physics will suffer

    But since im doing the new A levels there is no AS so i cant take AS Further Maths in Year 13 which is the 'at least' thingy on all the uni websites.

    I was talking to some students and teachers who told me that entry requirements may change or may not.

    What do u guys think about what I should do. Risk trying to do further maths
    or nothing coz requirements will have changed?
