    that sucks. i am sorry for you, cos even if people say it's not academical or whatever. i am going to get an A* so i really don't care about that. try to do an A level in one year, that's i think the only solution, because they care more about your A-levels than your As
    Yeah, I'm going to consider doing a whole A level in one year. But it must take a lot of hard work and double the effort and time right?

    I guess that's what I'll have to do. Thank you
    No problems. Also you should decide soon what subject you're going to do. I mean if you choose a subject like maths, then you would have to learn all of AS and sit it next Jan. Since A2 relies on AS knowledge (which you would take in June). Or if you were very committed learn AS over summer and join A2 class and just take the AS modules in Jan. However I'm sure there will be quite a few subjects that don't depends on knowledge prior to AS, mostly humanities. So if you ask your Sixth Form and check the AS class doesn't run parallel to A2 than you could do that option. Good luck.

    Thank you again, and I'm thinking of doing Psychology in one year, and picking up Biology or something just as an AS. However, I'm afraid it would be very difficult to do Psychology in one year and Biology too as both subjects need a lot of hard work and revision. So, I might pick up something easier like Media, Citizenship or Government & Polictics as an AS which are much easier to get high grades as I find English one of my strong points- but not a career in it.

      depends what subject you are doing, i did Biology as an AS and if you are not really good at it, i wouldn't do it. it is so much work and it is sooooooo dull. if i were you I would consider something like media just like you said. because as long as you are not applying to oxford for medicine they don't give a damn about which a levels you are doing. as long as you have the grades and it is NOT critical thinking
