    Due to illness, procrastination and general incompetence I've had to drop one of three A Levels I'm currently taking leaving me with just the two (Film and Sociology, predicted b in both). Is it even worth finishing these courses? Will any University take me on?

    Why don't you finish the two your doing and do another two next year. Email Unis to check if they will accept you. But most offers are three Alevels.

    No it's a minimum of 3 plus general studies, most universities don't accept general studies.

    Wow, that was quick. I realised that wasn't true and deleted my comment before you put your comment down.

    You only have one A-Level the top unis may accept and even than it's not a 'hard' subject. Why not do a couple more next year?

    Some universities accept two A-levels, although it depends on the subject you want to study. For example, London College of Communication's (Arts London) Film and Television degree asks for two A-levels and a portfolio of work.

    Also, a B at A-level is 100 UCAS points, so two Bs would equal 200... several uni courses ask for this or lower, e.g. Psychology at East London.

    Some of the newer universities will accept students without A-Levels.

    Most traditional unis don't, but some of the newer institutions which give out ucas point offers will be OK with you having only 2 A2 subjects as long as you get the points.

    I have two A-Levels and two AS Levels with grades BBcd. This year I got 3 conditionals (Manchester - Brookes - Sheffield, to improve on one of my as levels) and two unconditionals (uclan and another). Hope this gives you a bit more confidence. Although it can really depend on your two as level grades, and of course your ps. However your subjects aren't very mainstream, you might want to look into finishing those and taking another in a year out?

    Well I was looking to do Film in particular but I'm willing to study anything in that general area if my grades aren't up to mark.
