Hi !

I am an international student, so I have the luxury of sitting my exams in either the May session or October session. I sat for my AS this october. I sat for Biology, English lang and Psychology.

Im planning on sitting for A2 English and Psychology early, this may, not october whilst resitting the AS papers for english and psych.

I was planning on not doing biology in may, but do it in october as I should be doing, whilst also resitting biology AS papers.

Ive seen universities say I need 3 A levels in one sitting, would this count?? Am I in trouble?

You need to post a link to where it says this. The exact wording is important.. The most common reason for such a condition to crop up is Medicine course.

One sitting = within two year period

You're fine

Tigger999 is right, the exact wording is important. These conditions are used to identify those candidates who can succeed with the workload of 3 simultaneous A levels. They could mean
3 full A levels completed in the same exam period (3 A2 done at the same time)
3 A levels completed over a two year period
3 A levels completed without resits.
I have seen all of these conditions used by different universities for different courses in the past. If it is not clear from the university web site, contact them with your plans and ask them for advice.
