so i'm currently doing 4 a levels (maths, chemistry, geography and history) and am getting high grades in them (As) but my teacher is recommending that i drop a subject to lessen workload.

i want to do law at cambridge so obviously, chemistry is less relevant here. is it worth taking an AS exam in chemistry (and not doing a full a level) or should i just drop it? will having an AS level be useful for applications? or is there any worth in keeping all 4?

any help appreciated

Maths, History, Geography would have to be at A*AA or more and if you had Chemistry you could get an easier A* or A grade as topics are still the same as they were in the 1990s, 2000s and 2010s, just some questions are worded differently.

Chemistry is a 'heavyweight' subject and therefore is highly regarded by admissions tutors for almost any degree course. Why not just do the A-Level? There are just 3 x 2 hour exams and 12 to 16 practical assessments.
