Do you need 4 AS levels for UCL? watch

    • Thread Starter

    So I am definitely considering UCL as a uni choice. My sister goes there and is doing Spanish (something I am also considering) She got 2A*s and 1A at A-level but did not submit her AS level History which I think was a C.

    I am really struggling with French AS at the moment, and would like nothing more than to drop it. But I have been getting mixed messages from people about what the requirements are.

    Do you definitely need 4 AS levels to get in? I plan to get at least AAA at A-level in English Literature, Spanish and Psychology. I also might do an EPQ if need be. But tell me, is keeping French worth all the stress?


    Luckily, UCL ask for AAB inc. an A in Spanish for Spanish and Latin American Studies, so you should be fine with just 3 AS levels

    EDIT: I misread. They do, unfortunately ask for a pass. But an EPQ is equivalent to an AS, so that should make the fourth AS.
