Do universities not like people spending 3 years at college to get more respected A Levels? Not to improve their grades! For instance, I want to do this;
(Completed) Year 12: AS English Language, AS Biology, AS Religious Studies and AS Psychology.
Year 13: AS English Literature, A2 Biology, A2 Religious Studies and A2 Psychology.
Year 14: A2 English Language, A2 English Literature and another AS or AS+A2 (in one year) of my choice.
This way I will have 3 respected A levels (English Literature, Biology and Religious Studies), 2 less-respected, but adored, A Levels (English Language and Psychology) and an AS in a subject I take a interest in e.g. Sociology, Mathematics, etc.
Other positives include;
- It would broaden my mind and knowledge base by studying more A Levels.
- I love education dearly and would adore an opportunity, if college allows it, to stay an extra year!
- It would give me more time to do; volunteering, work experience, extra reading, the decision making process of concluding exactly which university I would like to go to, etc.
The biggest con is if universities will not like this plan and, effectively, it harms my UCAS application.
Note - I have AAAA(A) at AS (extra in General Studies.) I have been predicted, by my college, to achieve A*A*A*A* at A2. I was hoping to get this by Year 13: A*AAaa or AAAaa and this by Year 14: A*AAAAA, A*AAAAa, AAAAAA or AAAAAa.
