To be honest, Welsh Bacc and your fourth A-Level would both be discounted by most universities, unless you were to do Maths at university and needed Further Maths. It's an easy A or B and if your offer is something like B in Welsh Bacc or Psychology for instance, it can serve as a back-up grade (as an example of what Birmingham have asked this year). Alternatively, if you're looking at UCAS tariff universities, it can help net you an offer.

Taking four A-Levels are a heavy workload but it gives you the opportunity to drop a subject if you don't like it or find it difficult to manage whereas the Welsh Bacc would be non-negotiable "do something or get kicked out".
