Hi, I am currently completing my GCSE examinations and we are advised to choose our subject choices for A’ Level within the following week. I intend to study four subjects, three of which are finalised; Chemistry, Biology and English Literature. However, I am still undecided regarding my fourth subject choice and I need to make a choice of whether to study Geography or Religious education. The fourth subject is merely a grade. Therefore, I would be looking for the subject which I could attain the highest grade possible, although, some universities look upon Geography as a science which is a fact worth noting. Any advice would be welcomed gratefully, thank you.

You do not require four A Levels. However, there are some students who manage to do 4 and get excellent results. You can always start with 4 and drop one after a couple of weeks if it gets too much.

With regards to subject choice, your 4th Alevel choice shouldn't really matter much as long as you make 3 informed choice. So it really depends on what you enjoy most and likely to well in.

You shouldn't be doing four A levels for medicine. You should be doing three: chemistry, biology and one other of your choice, such as the English lit. which you've already suggested.

I do 4 a levels and I am in year 12 and I regret picking 4 so much so I’m dropping one I just can’t handle the lack of time, mountains of work and unnecessary stress and for what? Unis only want 3 good a levels that line up with they’re course! Plus the apprenticeship I’m going to apply for only needs 2 STEM subjects and I took 4 because I thought they’d expect at least 3 stem subjects so now I’m just a stupid sleep deprived student who made uninformed choices... SERIOUSLY DONT DO 4!!!!!!

if i were you id do maths as a 4 tbh because if you miss your offer in a different subject u have a backup. geography or Religious education just provides breadth and diversity but they dont even need a forth subject so don't do it unless it will help u or you love it\
