    Hello, I have a question about A Levels.


    Previously, E.g Unit 3 could be done in January and Unit 4 in June.

    Is this going to change next year? Will it be Compulsory for all to do Unit 3 and 4 in June??

    Just to make sure? which is it?


    Thank You, very much

    But, Is this 100% For everyone? I mean, could you "Privately take exams in January" or are they all GONE for good.

    Thanks

    Dont bother with additional AS's i reckon.

    Universities focus there entries around the 3 main A2 levels, and very rarely make offers including the AS levels unless its something like a maths degree or medicine/vet

    Hmm depends really. I hear offers from high end universities being A*AA or AAAa with the a in further maths.

    Im only an AS student but i know some people who have been fast tracked. Generally the A2 maths have tight-ish boundaries which mean mistakes can be marginal. Might as well take it and see where it heads? If its too much, drop it
