    Basically, I have 2 good AS levels at AA and a very bad one at a U. I want to change the U for another subject which will mean i do a new AS and A2 for the new subject i chose. While I finish my 2 A2 levels in the subjects i continued with, I will be completing my AS in my new subject, thus leading to me staying in sixth form for 3 years instead of 2 . Since I didnt retake the subject and chose another a level will it hinder my chances of getting into a top uni if i achieve the grades in the entry requirements of these unis.

    It might do, it could depend on the course and what "top" universities, however it would be best to email the university directly and explain your situation and they would give you a more clear answer.
