    Hey students,
    i was just wondering whether or not i could get into college if i chose
    A2 chemistry, AS biology, AS maths and AS physics.
    i will be recieving my AS qualifications for chemistry on august i believe with a predicted grade at an A so far.

    After recieving this qualification, i wish to move college and pick up on the other AS courses that i failed to get into because there were no spaces.

    So my question here, is it possible to go college with 1 A2 and three AS's?
    because i heard colleges saying that you can only take 3 A2's into your second year, but i only have one.

    Thank you very much =)

    How come you're only doing 1 A2? For my required course at kings college london(just an example) they either want 3 A2's and 1 AS or 2 A2's and 3 AS's. I'll be honest, I dont know any places with just 1 A2 on their entry requirements

    oh nono, i want to carry on with A-levels and complete my A2 chemistry along with the AS's if i do get a place for them, this will mean an extra year at college.
    i was just wondering whether i could do that or not.

    Yeah you should be able to as long as the college does the A2 on the same exam board that you did your AS's on (for example if you do AS Physics on Edexcel then you would need to find a college that does A2 Physics on Edexcel too).

    Hope that helps

    ahhh i see i see.
    Thank you very much.
    i wasn't too sure whether i could do 1 A2 and a total of 3 AS's lol seems like a work load, but im determined.
    This is what the college wrote:
    "A2 Level
    An A2 level is the second half of an A level course. If the relevant grades are obtained in the AS levels, you can progress onto an A2 level course and specialise in two or three subjects. "

    it didn't state anything about having one A2 level course along with three AS'S.
    but yes, they have the same exam board, thank god lol =)
