Currently I am taking Maths, FMaths, Physics and CompSci, predicted 3 A*s with a B in Further, and looking to study Computer Science at Imperial. Honestly I don't hate Further, but I don't enjoy it either and I have a feeling it's going to make me do slightly worse in the other subjects purely due to the extra workload, but I feel like it's probably worth sticking with as there's less than a year left. However, I don't know if it's better to drop it and get 3 pretty much guaranteed A*s than 3 likely A*s with a B, as I got an A at AS, which honestly I am pleased enough with.
I've been mulling this over in my head since before AS levels, but now that it's getting close the point of no return I need to make a decision soon.
Any advice?

You could get A*A*A*A ?

Don’t you think you’ll improve on the B?

If I put the majority of my study time towards further, maybe I could get an A, but at the moment from the mock exams I've done it's not looking too good. I've got a mini-test coming up the first week back so I'll see what I get in that, if I get an A I might stick on for a bit longer.

i’m not gonna lie it gets harder especially in the last few months. Obviously depends on your exam board, I did edexcel and the second year chapters are pretty tricky especially towards the end. I would say that if you have really kept on top of further maths content for the past year and have a good grasp content of the content then stick with it. If not then maybe drop it? Also 4 subjects aren’t highly sought after, 3A*s is better than 3A* and 1 B, even if it’s in further maths. Also Imperial could give your offer as 3A* and 1 A which could be tricky to get.

I reckon you can easily get an A, if you think about it, you technically got an A, because highest grade in AS is an A
