    Thanks! I've literally only recently been considering it, so I haven't gotten anywhere. I don't think I'll end up going down that route to be honest.
    Probably a good decision. I think most aspiring medics have been planning their route for years

    So you won't have an AS in history then?

    For the current yr 11 we will only has AS exams if we drop a subject. All the A2's are linear!
    Schools won't waste money entering us for AS exams that count towards nothing!

    Drop the subject if you think it will really drag your other grades down with it, if you think you could manage and get good grades - go for 4.

    Yeah. Most schools will however unless they are private. The AS exams don't count towards anything anymore.(from next year).

    No. They are still a qualification and need to be declared on UCAS.

    Yeah if your dropping the subject u do the AS. If your doing the full A2, the AS doesn't count to the A2 grade like it used to
    (this what I meant, sorry for confusion)
    Not many schools will give the opportunity sit all the AS exams in the subjects you are carrying on
