    Quick question - if I want to do history A level in one year do I just put AS and A2 history as the options on my application? :o:

    Yes.

    You should let the college know in advance as they may assume AS in one year, A2 in the other.

    Make it quite clear.

    Good luck.

    I'm currently studying History in one year. My sixth form doesn't normally allow people to do this AFAIK, so I went and asked the Head of Sixth Form, then had to ask the Deputy Head of Sixth Form and then the Head of the History department. It took a while.

    I also had to start the A2 course in the summer, because at my school, after AS study leave you come back and start your A2 course. Over the summer holidays, I read through the AS textbooks so that I wasn't completely lost during A2 lessons, as half of the A2 course builds on AS knowledge.

    I also miss lessons due to clashes between AS and A2 lessons, so there's a lot of catching up to do. Furthermore, I have to put my all into the work, essays etc as the department and school are doing me a huge favour - taking the A level in one year could mean that I mess up and get a bad grade, which reflects badly on them. Also, due to the structure of the course, I couldn't take any modules this Jan exam season, so I only have one shot at getting an A (which is what I'm aiming for for uni).

    Good luck and feel free to PM me with any questions about it if they let you do it!
