    i'm thinking about doing another subject but as i have just completed my AS' and i dont particularly feel like repeating so would it be feasible to complete an additional subject in one year?

    Yes, it's feasible. However, it depends on whether or not it will fit in with your college timetable, how much work you are willing to put in and the subject. (Some A2 courses rely on students already having a basic level of knowledge from A/S. I know someone who did A/S and A2 English Language in the same year and met their target grade. Talk to your college as soon as possible.

    i have and they said it is probably not feasible to do so in the school, however they suggested that i could look at external options e.g. sit that a level in another school so i am looking into that!

    I've just completed my a levels over the course of two years. My AS grades were awful i got DEE in chem bio and psych respectively. I ended up retaking all of my AS modules alongside my A2 modules. In chem I've overall achieved an A whereas bio and psych remain at an E each. this is purely due to the fact i spent a lot more time revising chemistry as opposed to my other subjects but despite that my AS results did improve quite a lot. So now I'm resitting my A2 exams in june 2017 to help further bump my grades up. Id say it is possible to do it but it requires a **** TONNE of hard work and what I've learnt is you HAVE to balance your time for each subject equally otherwise you'll end up like me (only really improving one subject) baring in mind i did the legacy spec.

    thanks for your response, i am willing and dedicated to working hard to ensure that my grades will remain high as i intend to apply to Oxbridge/russell group uni's, the additional A level will enable me to drop ICT as i strongly feel that i will not be able to obtain a grade which would allow me to go to these universities.
