    I've just finished year 11, and I've completed 3 A2's with my GCSEs (I don't care if you don't believe me) in Maths, History and English Literature. I took my Maths, English and History GCSEs in year 9. When I start sixth form I will be taking AS Economics, Physics, Biology and Geography. Since I will already have 3 A-levels, would it be worth applying to university a year early and leave will 3 A2 and 4 AS? I want to apply for a Law degree.

    I'm not trying to show off, and I don't care if you don't believe me. I got 3 A's in AS last year and I think I've got A or A*'s in the A2's I've just done. Thanks

    I'm not too sure but if you go to uni a year early depending on your age you could come up against some problems or certain rules and such if your not 18 when you start. I'd personally carry on or take a year out to save/experience things. Not sure on teh going a year early thing. But sounds like your a clever kind of person so could handle it... Unis may need a bit more persuasion. Yeah in my personal opinion I'd say wait and go when your 18! Good luck

    I don't see why not. As for your age a lot of Scottish students at Uni are 17 when starting so i doubt that will be a problem.

    I'd be inclined to stay the extra year and finish your AS Levels (well, A2s) - having 7 A Levels is pretty impressive. One thing to bear in mind, though, is that any university offer may be conditional on the grades for the "pending" A Levels; that's not really a disadvantage per se.

    Looks like mummy and daddy can pay alot of 'hard-earned' cash to send their son to stereotypical pompous private school.
