3 AS Levels watch

    • Thread Starter

    I want to do BA Geography at university, and I'm looking at Exeter, Bristol, King's, Southampton and Sussex.

    I did 2 modular AS exams in January, and got an A for Geography and a U for Chemistry. I'd put a lot of work into Chemistry and it sadly didn't pay off at all, plus I don't need a science for my chosen degree, so after discussing it with my family and teachers I decided to drop it.

    I'm predicted AAA for my other AS Levels (Politics, Economics, Geography) and I'll be able to spend more time focusing on revising for them now too, but will only having 3 AS Levels limit the universities that'll accept me?

    If you look at most universities, they tend to ask for 3 a levels in their offers. However, I have seen a few ask for an extra AS level with 3 A2 levels. Would it be possible to pick up a fourth AS level next year?
Do I go to The Streets tomorrow night?
