Will I be able to get into uni doing 2 full A levels each year? watch

    • Thread Starter

    The school I attend makes us do 2 full A levels a year(which means doing both AS and A2 in the same year), unlike most schools which do half of 4 A levels each year. I was wondering if this could pose to be a problem when applying to a good university in the UK.

    Any help whatsoever is greatly appreciated!

    Whats sort of school is this? ....

    Anyways personally i think this 'method' is worse. There is less room more mistakes as if you had a bad session you will completely wreck your chances (Possibly) in gaining an offer. Also there is greater uncertainty for universities on how you will achieve your third entry grade. E.g. Its very easy for someone with AA(?) to flop on the last grade as theres no other subject they are interested in.

    Don't think it would matter - it's all about the end result! Double check by contacting a couple of uni's!
