Hello.

I was wondering if you have to take a certain amount of courses at college. Do you have to take at least 3, or can you take as many as you want? As i only want to take 2.

I assume you're talking about A levels.
The bare minimum nowadays is 3 AS's in 'proper' subjects and at least an AS in General Studies or Critical Thinking. I think you need to take 4 AS's pretty much everywhere now.

You might get away with just 3 AS's in your first year, but you need to check this up with your college.

Well, you can take less than three, but universities want at least 3, don't they? The only people I know who took less are going to the local leisure centre after having done an A-level. Depends what you want to do, really.

It depends on your college, why do you just want to do 2? You will need 3 to go to a decent university.

If you want to go to uni, you'll need 3 A-levels for most places, although some lower ranked ones might let you in with 2. If you want to go straight to work, it doesn't really matter, but 3 is the minimum employers will probably expect.

Many colleges/sixth forms require you to do at least 3 because otherwise you're not classed as a full time student, but you'd have to check with individual colleges to know for sure. As others have said, you'll alson need at least 3 to get into the majority of uni's. If you only want to do 2 subjects, maybe A-levels aren't for you? Maybe you should look at some other options, like more vocational courses. (this is merely a suggestion)
