Can I take 3 A levels without any AS levels, that means I won't drop any subject? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Eg. I'll take Chemistry, Biology and Maths for 2 Years ( A level) and I won't drop any subject so that means I wont have any AS level, so is that okay. Will I get accepted in any Uni?

    For most universities, that will be fine. However, do bear in mind that most people will have taken an additional AS at the very minimum, so it is not going to look amazing on your application. The one exception that I know of is UCL, which requires you to have taken 4 AS levels.

    What do you want to study at university? Medicine and veterinary medicine degrees will want a fourth AS, as will all subjects at Oxford, Cambridge and UCL.

    I only did 3 AS levels and got offers incl 3 Russell groups for a fairly competitive course.

    Unless you were hoping to apply for those really 'elite' unis, you will be fine.
