I am doing three AS levels. If i pass two subjects at AS and and fail one (U) it will mean i can do A2 for the two that i have passed. However i am thinking of picking up an extra A-level to compensate for the one i failed. I have done my research and i will be able to compress the extra A-level in to one year along with the other two which i passed. This will overall give me three A-levels. However i am doing two at a sixth form and the other one i will pick up will be somewhere else.

My question is how will ucas know i done the extra alevel that i picked up?

In your qualifications section of ucas, you select the a level subject and put down the AS an A2 grade as pending if I'm not mistaken

An A level is an A level, wherever you take it.

Of course it will. In the Education section of UCAS you will need to select the exam centre where you will take the exam privately, select PT (to show that you are taking it privately and not following a course at school) and mark it as pending. Ask your reference to mention that you will be taking an A-Level in one year privately. If not, mention it very briefly in your PS.

Admittedly, universities word their offers so as to be as obscure as possible, but they usually specify in the offer. '340 points from 3 full A levels' is a typical offer. 'From at least two full A levels' would allow some AS points to be used.

It means you have to have two full A2s and the rest can come from AS.
