Hello!
I'm sixteen, self-studying my IGCSEs and taking 6 subjects; English Literature, English Language, History, Economics, Chemistry and Maths.
I came out of school seven months ago and dropped Physics, Biology and Music. I want to study Literature, History, Economics and Maths for my A Levels and apply for Oxbridge in the future.
These are my questions:
- Are six IGCSEs enough for Oxbridge, or any UK university in general?
- Is studying just one science (Chemistry) OK?
- Does self-studying my IGCSEs (possibly also A Levels) in any way negatively affect my chances of applying or going to study at Oxbridge, or anywhere abroad? (I'm from Thailand and want to study in the UK.)
That's it! I'm a bit stuck at this point in my life so if you can reply to any of my questions, I would be eternally grateful

No to all questions. UK universities will generally want around 9 GCSEs.

I'm thinking of self-studying IGCSE Physics and Sociology during my A Levels. If I go to school, that would prove harder. If I self-study A Levels, it might be more convenient. What do you think?
