Just keep it realistic, and don’t forget that the difference between gcse and a levels is huge, so just because you’re excelling at a subject at gcse doesn’t mean it’ll be a breeze at A level.
If you’re doing 4 to keep your options open, do so but as soon as it gets unbearable then just drop it if you can. There’s a reason why universities ask for only 3.
I was thinking of taking 4 A-Levels - Chemistry, Biology, English Combined and French. I’ve seen a lot of people saying that 4 A-Levels can be too much and you’ll neglect one subject at least, but I’ve always had easy 9s in English so I thought it might be fine for college. Are these subjects too much to do all together at A-Level?
I would say 4 a levels would be very difficult, especially when you take into account that all 4 subjects you are looking at are very content heavy, and you will probably need to do an NEA for English and you will have an IRP for french, and also most unis only ask for 3 a levels so if you know what sort of thing you want to study (if you plan on going to uni) you should probably take 3 a levels because a levels are so different to GCSEs I know people who got 9s in GCSEs who are failing and people who got 4s who are doing really well, you need all the time you can get, it would be better to do 3 well than be struggling and playing catch up all the time with 4 xx
