    Hi!
    I'm currently taking 2 A-Levels since I am unable to swap my subjects around last minute. I don't like what I am currently taking, so I was wondering if I stayed on at my school, finished the AS Levels I am taking and then start AS with different subjects the next year, would this work?

    For example,
    this year I am taking Business, Media and an EPQ.
    Can I just do AS Business, and change to take 2 subjects at AS through to A-Level next year?

    And would I have to move schools?
    Many thanks

    It will depend entirely on the policy of your school - it's them you need to ask.

    Hello, slightly unclear on what you're doing.

    So you're a first year student at A-Level, taking Business, Media (and an EPQ) and you want to drop Media at the end of the year, (whilst carrying onto A2 business) to pick up two other AS's which you would finish in a third year at sixth form?

    Hypothetically yes it is. It depends on the school itself. Some don't allow students to resit or retake, most should be okay with it. Is there someone at your school you can ask about it?
