    I'm starting my A-levels on Monday, and I am aiming for Cambridge law, but I am only doing 3 A2 because my school won't let me do AS French as it doesn't fit into the timetable. However, I am doing an EPQ.
    Would not doing an AS reduce my chances of getting into Cambridge?

    No I don't think so.. many sixth forms don't offer AS anymore either. I think that as long as you meet your offer at A2 then you should be fine. Good luck, I'm starting on monday too what subjects are you taking?

    Not at all. Most universities generally require 3 A level qualifications anyway so. Also it's good that you're doing EPQ on the side as it shows off many of your skills through presenting/writing/whatever you choose to do. I did a dissertation for my EPQ which is apparently good prep for university essays and stuff.

    Nope, you will not be disadvantaged.
