    Hello,

    I am currently in lower sixth and looking for universities to apply for. I have chosen to go for UCL because it is one of the best in the world so it would be very good to do a physics degree there. However...here comes my problem.

    The typical offer for physics is AAA, which I can get, but they also ask for a pass in a further subject at AS-Level. My problem is that I am doing Physics, Chemistry, and Further maths(which is Maths and Further Maths). At the end of this year I will get 2 AS levels in Physics and Chemistry and an A-Level in Maths, and next year I will get an A-Level in Further Maths. That means that I get 2 AS Levels and 4 A Levels. Would this allow me to get into UCL?

    I'm confused, are you intending to drop Physics and Chemistry after this year?

    Four full A-levels will be fine.

    Ah right. Well thank you so much for clearing that up. I've been worrying about that for months.
