    Hey guys, I know that almost all universities want A1 AND A2, I'll be sitting for A1 in may, I will also be taking A2 later. I wanted to know if it was possible to apply with A1 results as I'll still be taking A2

    A1? Do you mean AS?

    If so yes, most students apply before sitting their final A-level exams and use predicted grades to do so.

    Which exam board are you taking?

    Yes I ment AS, I'm sitting for Cambridge international A-level, but I am a home schooled student, which is why I was wondering how to apply, as I don't think I can get predicted grades.

    That's different then! Do you have a tutor or other independent person who can provide a reference (and also predictions).

    See the info here:

    Also, your ASs will help universities see your current academic level, if you can't get predictions.

    Yes, I have tutors who are teaching me, Sorry what do you mean by "provide reference" sorry to ask so many questions. I'm studying from Africa and it's a bit difficult to find the most accurate information

    You apply with your AS (A1) grades and your predicted A2 grades. Based on these, universities will give you offers. UCAS will ask you for a reference, which I assume you would get from your tutor - if not, there are circumstances in which you can apply without a reference however you must contact UCAS and your prospective universities about this beforehand.

    Follow the link in my earlier post. It takes you to the UCAS site - they are the company that all UK university applications need to be made through.

    They also have guidance on completing their application form:
    https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergradu...te-application

    You can't actually start applying until later this year but you might like to have a look at the info in advance.

    Also TSR has information too.
    e.g.
