    Some context:
    - I do 4 linear A-Levels at the moment: French, History, Politics and English Literature
    - One of my english teachers is complete crap and i dont have much faith in achieving a high A level grade despite getting 2 9s for english at gcse
    - My concern is that the workload of 4 a levels during exam season will be too much, it is even a lot to cope with now

    I am strongly considering dropping English and doing 3 A levels instead. I attended a Cambridge English masterclass (ironically) and they said they absolutely do not discriminate against those who do 4 over 3 or vice versa.

    My ultimate goal is studying Law (maybe with French Law) at Oxbridge.

    Should I drop English Lit? Will dropping it severely damage my uni application?
