    I was thinking of doing a full A level in physics in a year as it wasnt an option this year (only like 2 people picked it so the school didnt run it). Im currently in year 12 and doing 6 A levels but I'll be dropping chemistry next year (not feeling it at all). Any advice???

    My advice would be to seriously consider whether doing 6 A-levels next year (5 + Physics) is absolutely necessary, and whether you could afford to drop more and the most important ones that you need for university.

    I know of people who have studied Physics in one year on the old spec and done perfectly well but that doesn't say much about the new spec

    You are able to study the new (2015) Physics syllabus in "1 year" and sit your final exams in Summer 2017.

    You will probably find that your school/college are not able to accommodate you in the lessons for both year 1 and 2 due to timetabling and studying with a distance learning or online provider as a Private Candidate would be your most likely option.

    If you are already studying 6 A levels, I do not think there is a University anywhere in the UK who would expect you to have completed a 7th!
