    It's a year on after I left A-levels and I'm currently in an I.T. apprenticeship for some experience.
    I left A levels with a distinction * in I.T, distinction in Media, and an A in AS English (AQA).
    First question, is it possible to do some sort of part time English Literature course for only A2, as I feel it may be worth getting three A2s.
    Second question, if possible, would it even be worth getting an A2 in English?
    If I converted my grades it would be around the lines of A*AA if I were to get an A2 in English. However I want to go to a good university and many ask for AAB or AAA, which I could have if I did somehow get my A2 done in English.

    Thanks

    It all depends on if your english qualification spec was still available to be sat or not. I think getting 3 a2's would definitely be worth your while, otherwise it's likely you'd have to do a foundation year to get onto a degree.

    But then you have a lot of uni's who accept AS level if you have at least 2 A2s?
