Is it worth doing 4 A levels?

My DS teacher says that provided he gets his expected grades at AS level next week, he should continue with 4 A levels rather than dropping one as we expected. Her argument is that as Maths & Further Maths overlap a lot he can cope with 4. However we are concerned that he might be putting too much pressure on himself when most uni's only seem bothered about 3 A-levels anyway. DS thought it might give him a slight advantage to be doing 4 A levels rather than 3 when it comes to uni offers. Are there any uni admissions people who can give us any advice please

Interesting comments on Further Maths from various Universities

You may find it helpful to read the above link.

We are in situation where 6th Form have decided not to run FM this year (not enough pupils wishing to take it). We are trying to persuade them otherwise, so are asking that they read same.

Forgot to say, you will see from the link that even just doing FM to AS level is considered by many to be beneficial.
