    My current subjects are English Lit, Maths, Religious Studies and Sociology. I'm struggling with maths and might consider dropping it if the answer to the question above is yes. I know that top universities want you to have at least 2 facilitating subjects, so will it hinder my chances if I got rid of maths?

    No.

    Facilitating subjects are:
    • Mathematics and Further Mathematics
    • English Literature
    • Physics
    • Biology
    • Chemistry
    • Geography
    • History
    • Languages (Classical and Modern)

    So if I dropped Maths, and did Sociology, English Lit and Religious Studies (Philosophy) would I be unable to go to top universities (Oxbridge or anything like that).

    The 2 facilitating subjects is generally recommended by RG unis to "keep your options open" and if you are unsure what you want to do. What are you planning on doing at uni?

    If you are not planning to apply for maths, I suppose it doesn't matter so much, if you are genuinely just struggling with Maths, don't continue; it's much better to do three A Levels and get excellent marks than to do four and only get average marks.
