    Just logged into track to check the conditions of my offer to study at Sheffield, and noticed that they did not specify that they don't accept general studies:

    This offer is subject to you obtaining:

    GCE A level
    Grades AAA including
    English Literature
    Does this mean that an A grade in general studies would be accepted?

    Ring up the admissions officer and ask them directly, or send them an email.

    Imagine this situation: Even if someone here replies 'Yes, Sheffield accepts it 100%', then the day comes and you didn't get in (turns out they don't accept it)... All you can say is, 'Well, I made a post on a forum and somebody told me you would accpet it'.

    to quote the prospectus:

    We accept all GCE A Level subjects approved by Ofqual. A Level General Studies is accepted for entry to some courses
    I would suggest that given how competitive Englit is, they are likely not to accept it. You will have to check, though, to be sure.
