    It's unlikely they'll accept you, but you could try and get it written in your reference that the 4th AS was out of your control in doing it?

    If their entry requirements state that a fourth AS level is required, you'll probably be rejected simply because you don't meet the basic requirements - so it's not worth applying to UCL, unfortunately. However, if not having a fourth AS level was completely out of your control (e.g. it was a school policy), then you should ask your school to mention that factor in your reference, and you'll likely have a good chance at getting in.

    On this page, they say that a GCSE in a foreign language studied from scratch is an acceptable alternative but obviously that's probably not going to be feasible now... Sorry! Noodlzzz suggested that you mention in your reference that the fourth AS was out of control but I suggest that you email UCL first to ask if they'd actually consider your application in the first place. It's possible that they might just automatically reject it in which case it's not even worth applying.
