    forget about which would be most respected - just take whichever you think you will enjoy the most, all of them are fine

    As long as you meet their requirements, universities really don't mind what you do. Do whatever you like!

    You are already doing 4. Another is purely superfluous, do what you will enjoy.

    Taking 5 really isn't necessary but if you must, you might as well take the one you'll enjoy most.

    Just stick with the four IMO - a lot of people who do five are the ones who do maths & further maths

    french is the most "respected" out of all of them, but its not necessary for you to take this subject if you don't like it, as you will not need it

    Well, considering its medicine, physcology would be the most obvious choice. Its true that French is well respected...but its also a lot harder, and given your current 4 choices, are you sure you would be able to keep up???

    To be honest, anything would be fine. You've got your main 4 and that's what counts, anything else would just be extra. Outta interest, why are you taking 5 AS?

    At my school, if you take 4AS's you have to do General Studies or Critical Thinking whereas if you do 5, you don't have too. (:

    Ah, alright. I've never understood why some school's try and make their students do 5 AS when 3 A-Levels is the norm.
