    Hey guys so after deciding between oriental studies and history I finally decided I would like to study history at university!
    The problem is I haven't done history AS...
    I'm currently studying Maths,Geography and Sociology. After some problems with arranging the exam I will be taking both Italian AS and A2 next January but since my parents have taught me how to speak and write I'm fluent at it so it wouldn't be a problem.
    Now if i dropped maths(which i may get a C since im going to fail stats) and carried on with Sociology and Geography and took the whole history A level in one year plus Italian could I still apply for university?
    How do I put down my grades if I haven't taken the exams yet?
    I'm planning to start working on history as soon as my exams finish.

    I need your help guys!!
    Thanks so much in advance!

    You'd have to check with your college if they'd let you do that. If they do, you would enter both your As and A2 grades as 'pending'.

    But since I can't have predicted grades wouldn't universities reject me?
