    Hey guys, I'm currently in the second year of college and I decided to not take an extended project or an AS and only just recently I've realised that I may have disadvantaged myself compared to everyone who did take either of them... So what I'm asking is, will it make much of a difference whether or not I took an AS/EPQ along side my 3 A2's?

    Thanks

    Not really.
    9/10 Courses / Universities only ask for 3 A2s anyways.
    Im sure as long as you got 3 good grades in AS, then having a 4th AS is the least of their concern and more about your Personal statement / references.

    You're not disadvantaged! What course would you like to do at Uni? Plus it allows you to concentrate more on your 3 subjects and get a really good grade.. that's what most Uni's are looking for Don't worry!
