    So i only took 3 AS - levels (maths, further maths and comp sci), and i achieved an A,A,D, respectively. This led to me dropping comp sci and picking up AS-physics. However I'm starting to realize this was probably a mistake, even tough I'm enjoying physics a lot more.
    Currently, the hopeful end goal is to study maths at uni. But I'm not really sure the best route, or what unis would even accept me with just two A - levels. Whether i stay in collage for another year, or abandon the idea altogether?
    Any advice or opinions would be highly appreciated, thanks!

    You will really need 3 full A levels.

    You can check the entrance requirements, but you could:

    1. Do an A level in one year.
    2. Do a BTEC
    3. See if they have an option with a foundation year.
    4. Go to a lesser Uni


    I would only consider the above if you cant rescue Physics and get it to at least a B.
