    Unlikely to happen.

    Most Unis will accept you at 17 (but usually not for Medicine or Nursing).

    You are not 'legally responsible' at 17 so your parents will have to sign any legal agreements for you, and you may well be restricted about which student accom. etc you are allowed to live in. And of course you wont be able to go drinking with your mates because you will be underage,

    Take a planned Gap Year. Go to Uni at 18 - it'll be much more fun.

    Only if you do your A-levels early which is not generally recommended.

    Why do you want to go early, and which course(s) are you considering?
