    Is it possible for you to do another AS in year 13?

    u can still be accpeted even if u only did three AS subjects, as long as it was beocz ur school cudnt offer a 4th one. if u chose not to take a 4th AS, then it will be a problem.
    also, those three AS ones u did need to be strong subjects. so basically no 'mickey mouse' subjects.

    My friend only took 3AS's, despite the school telling us that this was the option for weaker candidates, and most people taking 4. She continued the 3 to A2, got 3 A grades and got into oxford. They don't specify that you take 4 AS's, and with the number of people being rejected with 4 or 5 A's shows that an enthusiasm for the subject is just as highly valued.
    Anyway, hope this helps you.

    you should be fine, most applicants have 4 Alevels to offer, but seeing as the standard offers include only 3 subjects, you shouldn't have too much of a problem. yur subjects are nice and traditional and academic as well, which they will like. good luck
