    hi, im currently doing ICT, DT and PE. Just finished my exams. I think I will be getting around BBB or BBC (the C being my PE). I want to drop PE and take up a business AS and carry through ICT and DT for the A2. that will leave me with 2 A2's and 2 AS. My question is will universities like loughbour and manchester accept 2 A levels and 2 AS levels instead of 3 full A levels. I would apretiate any help at all as i'm really confused about what to do nxt year. Thanks guys and gurlz .

    I know manchester accepts 2 AS's to be combined to make 1 A2. I'm not sure about loughborough though, you could see their website or call them to see if the accept 2 As's to be combined to make 1 A2. What course are you going to apply to by the way?

    Ok. I found the entrance requirements for your course at lboro. They want 280 points from 2 A-level subjects and a third subject at A-level or 2 AS levels. Therefore you can have 2 AS levels to make 1 full A-level.

    I think the person doing 3 A-levels would get the place. Remember they will also take the reference, interview (if any), and personal statement into consideration as well as grades. This means that they do not concentrate only on grades.

    If a person that took 3 A-levels who doesn't have a good personal statement or something like that or grades, I would choose the person with 2 A-levels and 2 AS's as that person has a good personal statement, reference and grades.

    You're welcome.

    I would recommend you to apply to a variety of universities that accepts BBB to BBC grades along with BCC-CCC. In addition, you might want to apply to uni's that want 2 A-levels, or 3 A-levels and 1 AS, or 2 A-levels and 2 AS's.
