    Is it better to have 4 a levels or to drop one after AS and concentrate on 3? I'm looking at oxbridge for a history degree possibly and I'm not sure what would be better and if they prefer for us to have 4?

    From what I’ve seen at Cambridge they don’t mind if you have 3 or 4 as long as they are all exceptional

    They won't want you to have 4 A-levels. They want you to have 3 very good or excellent A-levels.

    In terms of importance:

    Grades > Quantity.
