If I was to do 4 A-levels, I would do Chemistry, Economics, Maths, and History. But since I think it might be too time-consuming, I am thinking of dropping history to do the EPQ on history and electives, which would allow me to focus on my 3 subjects and try to get 3 A*s.

Would this be a good decision?

Both options are fine. Although, which universities are you looking to apply to? It's absolutely fine if you don't have any idea yet, but please do remember that some universities give reduced offers for having an A/A* in the EPQ.

Personally, I would do 3 A-Levels and an EPQ as universities only require 3 A-levels. Doing 4 is not necessary.

I did 4 A-Levels and an EPQ and I WOULDN'T recommend it. I ended up just doing an AS and dropping the fourth one as I just couldn't cope. Do 3 A-Levels and an EPQ.
