    Hey,

    New here, have a bit of a problem.

    This year I've had to leave sixth form for health reasons and so I won't complete my A levels - I have 5 AS with good grades but since they're completely restructuring A levels I can never complete them. I would need to start all over again. :/

    I still want to go to uni, and I was aiming high, but I'm not sure if this will permanently disadvantage me. Completely doing A levels again is obviously not very appealing, especially since I've already done 3 years at sixth form

    Course wise, I wanted to do archaeology.

    My question is: what are my prospects for applying directly to Russell group unis in my current situation? My AS grades were AAABB. Are there any top unis that would offer a place to someone in my position?

    You could contact admissions but even with health issues i wouldnt be hopefully of anywhere accepting you onto year 1 entry with only as. Ask them about foundation years i think.
