3 A-Levels to pursue Mathematics at Cambridge University

The A-levels I am applying for are:
Physics
Maths
Further Maths

Would I be at any significant or any form of disadvantage at all by only picking 3 A-levels rather than a 4th like Chemistry when applying for Mathematics at Cambridge University?

Depending on individual circumstances, some Colleges*may make an A Level applicant an offer which will be met if they achieve either A star A star with at least grade 1 in both of STEP papers 2*and 3*OR A star, A star and A star grades in A-Levels with at least grade 1 in either STEP paper 2*or 3*(both papers to be taken).

Applicants to the Mathematics course who take A Level Mathematics in Year 12, and A Level Further Mathematics and one other A Level subject in Year 13 will not usually need to take another A Level in Year 13.1

Such students may be required to achieve A star in the two subjects taken in Year 13 (even if they achieve A star in Mathematics), and should be enhancing their subject knowledge through wider engagement beyond their A Levels. Contact a College admissions office for further advice.

1 Students should consider potential implications this may have for their other university options.

Are you aware of any examples of ways to "enhancing their subject knowledge through wider engagement beyond their A Levels"
