    okay so results day didn't go as planned for me i only passed 2 AS levels out of the 4. But my school said thy would still let me into A2 if i continued with the 2 AS levels that I passed in and pick up an AS that i can only do for 1 year. Basically im doing Biology A level, Psychology A level and 1 AS in econimics. I want to know if i can get into uni with this or is it better to start fresh in another school?

    I dont think its impossible, some uni's such as De Mont fort look at your total UMS. I applied for audiology and was given an offer which could have easily been achieved by just two a levels. But you need to have good AS grades initially, and tbh you wont get many offers imo but just ask the uni before hand.

    My friend went to uni with 2 A2's and an AS, but it wasn't an amazing uni. In saying that she got all B grades so if you really try to aim for atleast A/B grades you could get into an okay/good uni. Some uni's want 3 A2's at specific grades, while others will take you on through the UCAS point system. If i was you i'd research around the uni's/courses you want to apply to or contact them and ask so you can make your mind up that way.
