    Basically, I am currently doing 3 A2 subjects. However, my school thinks that I am not preforming well enough in one particular subject and they just kicked me out of the class and do not let me to do any of the internal and external exams.

    Here comes the problem, I need three A-Levels the meet my university offer, and now they are stopping me!! Is this unconstitutional? Do they have any rights to do so? Are there any thing that I can do? I am really desperate.....

    They are likely to have the right to do so if you signed any kind of agreement when you joined which came with the terms that they are allowed to remove you from a subject if you are performing badly in it. In effect by enrolling there, you are agreeing to their rules and conditions so there isn't a lot you can actually do.

    The best thing for you to do would be to talk to whoever is in charge and politely explain the situation. Answer any of their questions fully and with good explanation - you need to say why you were doing badly and what you are going to do to improve and make things better.

    Is this unconstitutional?
    It wouldn't be unconstitutional in the US and they actually have a constitution. We don't. You (theoretically) are not a child anymore so they can refuse to educate you further.

    They are allowed to stop you from taking a class, although they should provide you with an alternative - try just explaining the situation and asking what they want you to do now you don't have enough subjects
