It's definitely hard. Even 3 A levels is hard. But if you put the effort in from the start and work consistently, then it's manageable. You could try with 4 to begin with to see how hard it will be for you and then you can drop one if it becomes too difficult to manage

French can probably drag you down if you are not very good at it. I did 4 but Italian was my native language.

No - most schools won't allow it.

It will be tricky, because it's a lot of work. Biology alone is extremely content heavy, and they all are tbh (I'm not that knowledgeable about French though). If you're hardworking and willing to sacrifice other things e.g. your social life and potentially a job (if you were thinking about it) then you can do it. But you really do need to be dedicated and willing to devote your time to them. I took 4 AS-Levels and that was so draining, I couldn't imagine taking them for the full 2 years.

Unless you have a phenomenal memory I think this will be tough as there is a lot of content to learn!

I personally did maths, f. Maths, physics and geog and found the maths and physics easier than geog because they were like one subject and very interrelated. Geog I found hard because it was very essay based.

There will be a lot of essays for english lit, history, and a lot of verbs and vocab for french and a lot of long names to learn for bio.

Good luck whatever you decide.

If you are going to do A-level maths, then don't pick 4 subjects.

I was so confused after doing 4AS levels lol. I did 4 with the plan to drop one, but I did better in geography than physics :facepalm: so ended up carrying on with all four, expecting to drop one by xmas but ended up carrying on all 4 to end of A2 because I was so indecisive about which one to drop!

Luckily lady luck was on my side and I got 4A’s 🙊

No way hahahahahah, I know that's completely off topic but I think British girls are much better than Italian ones, especially from Napoli :confused:

Well not talking of the hookers. Talking about the real women. I prefer italian women over british women any day! Brit women are just ****s; they spread their legs for anything. No class.
