    In my school you can only do further maths if you take it as a 4th a level that may be the same in a lot of schools in that everyone who takes further maths is doing 4 a levels

    I'm doing three - Maths, CS and French. I was intending on doing four, but none of the subjects in the final option block appealed to me. Universities base their offers on 3 A-levels, so you won't be put at a disadvantage.
    For some reason my school is still doing AS levels so I am currently doing 4 subjects, but a friend of mine is doing the same as you. The best way to know whether you'll be at a disadvantage is to ask admissions tutors at the universities for the courses you're planning to apply for. I don't really see why you'd be at a disadvantage if most people around the country are doing 3 A Levels though.

    Haven't really read all the thread so idk if I'm repeating people but I'm hoping 3 is fine, I was practically persuaded to take 3 by my college and decided to do an EPQ instead... didn't really have a 4th that appealed to me - in taking Biology, Chemistry & Maths... I had been worried too that I would be at a disadvantage... manly thinking along the lines of UCAS points but I guess if an interest in our chosen degree subject is highlighted (when it comes to uni) in other ways e.g reading & work experience then it should be chill 😂

    Yeah I've noticed many further maths students choose 4 A levels, so I thought I may be put a disadvantage.
    I think it’s only LSE that says if you do further maths, you must do 4 A levels

    Welsh gang checking in :five:

    And to OP, if you have no interest in taking up any other A-level as a 4th one then don't do it. People might say that the likes of Oxbridge like to see 4 A-levels, but if you're applying for one of maths/physics as you say, a good STEP/MAT/PAT/etc. score will be far, far more important than a 4th A-level.

    It's only a few MedSchools, and Economics at LSE, that have a "restriction" on FM. Not exactly a significant limitation.
