    No, you're going to need the full A2 or a BTEC equivalent.

    Nope. If you want to go uni you will have to apply with your overall a level result. Foundation years that I have seen have a level requirements range from CCC-AAB. Depending on your AS results you can apply to university starting in september but you will have to take your A2 exams also.

    Probably not, but you might get lucky - but you need to consider if the few places that will accept you are actually where you want to go. There's no point going somewhere just because you can get in; you have to actually like the subject and uni.

    Even for a foundation year you're likely to be limited to unis low down the league tables. Anywhere higher we expect study skills that you can't prove you have yet.

    Why don't you take another year off to finish A2? If you wouldn't mind doing a foundation year, I'm sure you wouldn't mind sparing another year to finish your qualifications in the summer then beginning uni the following September
    What were your subjects? It may be difficult though if your subjects are now reformed.

    It could be a possibility if you're willing not to get hung up on league tables and are a mature(ish) student.

    Nb. League tables don't matter when it comes to being at the uni and getting on with things there and beyond.
