    Hi, I moved in England last year and this year I'm doing level 2 applied science, GCSE maths and functional skills level 2 english. Next year I want to do biology, chemistry and physics A level because I want to do medicine in university. Can I do A levels with only one GCSE? Can I do three A levels and GCSE english next year?

    Most unis, especially for medicine, will be looking for a proper GCSE in English.They also look for very high grades in usually at least 5 subjects. I don't think that Level 2 applied science will prepare you properly for the demands of A-level science and not many sixth forms/colleges will accept you onto A-level courses with just your applied science.
