    I can't handle 4 subjects, I am currently taking Biology, Chem, Psychology and Geography but I never have time to revise Chemistry!
    Chemistry is the hardest subject and at the moment I'm not doing so well in it.
    In the future I want to do a degree in Geoglogy and I've been looking at entry requirements for Exeter, Edinburgh and Southampton.
    It says I need AAB for most unis in 2 sciences (Geog is counted as a science apparently)

    So can I drop Chemistry?!
    Or should I carry on and just do an AS in it.
    I'm scared that if I drop Chem I don't look as good to universities.
    I need to decide quick so if I do drop it, I won't waste time revising it.

    AAA will look better than AABa

    Doing 4 A-Levels is just excessive in my opinion - I'd personally drop Chemistry. Unless you're looking to do something to do with medicine - it'll just make everything else harder considering its a hard subject to revise for anyway.
