yea im well confused, I gave up on ascertaining what was going on.

The rules dont mean that you have to do your AS and A2 all in one sitting in the final summer. They also dont mean that you cant take modules early, such as unit 4 in january etc. What they do mean is that you cant take 2 a-levels one year, then take an extra year and achieve another 2 because it is easier that way, and you can get AAAA more easily. What they also prohibit is the use of resits (or thats how I read it).

so you're going to do A2 units in eng lit and psychology and full A levels (AS and A2) in history and business studies next year?

wow, if im right, it's gonna be a tough year for you!!
Pretty much correct although I have been taught AS modules in History I was just unable to sit the exams and then I had no college to go to so I am self teaching.

apparantly you can re-sit a/s modules. but you cant resit a whole year. Well some people from my school who are going to oxbridge this year did some re-sits of AS modules in June, so i think that could be allowed.

if u resit a whole year, but with different subjects will that still prejudice against your application?

Grateful for any info,
thanks :-)

i'm guessing by ure choices u wanna stay in the south. i know ure pred AAB, but i know u got ABB, so perhaps if u really dont mind about ure sixth choice as u seem to have a fave and love your five, you should find a uni thats BBB just in case it goes horrible wrong, just in case mind.

EDIT: its really difficult without that book at school(the Brian Heap one) to figure out what each uni's offer is without havign to search for it but i have found Oxford Brookes ask for BBB for Law, it is a v good new uni!

I'm having a bit of trouble deciding to be honest.

Academically I've got pretty good results behind me:

GCSE: 5A* 4A (2005). B and a C (2004). I took my GCSE's in exceptional circumstances last summer - Dad was taken seriously ill in the first week of exams, great timing I know.

AS: AAAAA (including General Studies). Economics - 297, History -290 and English - 281, which means I should get AAA. I'm planning on continuing with all four subjects to be safe.

I'm not sure I really want to go down the Oxbridge route to be honest, and I'm worried about the living costs in London. Saying that I will probably apply to UCL and KCL.

Nottingham and Warwick I will apply to, possibly Bristol but I'm not overly keen. Living in Bournemouth means that I wouldn't want to go too far north, as it would be too far away from home.

Do you want the four year course specifically?
I think you should be aiming higher - Kings at AAB and maybe even one or two AAA uni's. You have AAAC at AS level!! This could mean your teachers predict you AAA?

I thought mtbab could aim higher as well but I assumed that he wanted to apply to those particular type of courses that he is applying to like law with european/american studies etc, I guess this reduces the number of possible universities that he can apply to and of those he has probably already made his choice.

From what I've heard I don't think I would enjoy it there, although I expect a lot of people have misconceptions about LSE.
