    Hiya folks.

    My country and school are weird. AS Latin is the highest level of Latin we can do under the alevel system. A2 isn't offered by my exam board. And we don't sit it in year 12 either. We do IGCSE Latin in year 12 instead, and AS in year 13.

    With that in mind, would UCAS n' stuff still let me apply for "Classics I" (the Oxford course with just Latin) even though I'm putting only AS Latin on my subject lists, given that A2 is supposed to be a prerequisite for that course? And then, if my application did make it to the desk of Oxford's admissions people, would it be chucked in the bin anyway because of the AS bit or still considered? I won't even be applying with an AS Latin grade under my belt, because we do it in year 13.

    In case nobody knows here how to answer this question, who d'ya think I should I be emailing/pm-ing to solve this little issue of mine.

    ty for any advice


    PS Our AS exam makes up for being just an AS exam taken in year 13 by being a bit harder than the AS equivalent done in the UK. But its still not as hard as Pre-U Latin or OCR's A2 Latin, I think. So applying for Classics II would be a bit of a pain, because id already know a lot of latin

    I would recommend emailing one of the Academic Administrative Staff listed here and see what they would advise for somebody in your position.
