Thinking about applying to Oxford to study history and currently studying 4 a levels (history, English, french and theatre)

Thinking about dropping one to ensure enough time to do justice to the other three - do you think Oxford admissions would look unfavourably at 'History, English, Theatre studies'?

Thanks for any advice!

Hi, I have an offer to study History and English at Oxford and my A Levels are History, English and Art. As long as your predicted grades are good in History and English, I don't think they'd look unfavourably upon a creative A Level. If you want you could try to incorporate something into your personal statement about how Theatre studies has helped your study of History but I really wouldn't worry too much!

for oxford they'll mainly care about your GCSEs and HAT performance. Although i think for history gcses may matter less than other courses but Oxford certainly care a lot about gcses and cGCSEs

Correct decision to do 3 A Levels instead of 4
Quality > Quantity when it comes to ALevel
