    Another quick question - (sorry for opening a second thread - but I figured this is easier and also means people can search for it in the future).

    When universities have course specific requirements (for example, for Foundation Medicine at Keele, you may have no more than one science), does this refer only to your A2? For example - if I took Physics AS and maths A2, would I end up with two 'science' (apparently maths is counted as a science :curious:), A levels, or one science A level and one AS level?

    No, only A2. If they were to accept As it would say - 'AS maths acceptable' etc

    This. Otherwise wouldn't we all just stop at AS?

    How much do they consider AS subjects?
    eg would you be better off with an AS in english lit than in, say, theatre studies, for a 'rigorous' degree subject?
