    This may be hard to understand but ill make it as simple as possible. I started Y12 with 2 equivalent A levels, Business and ICT, and one A level, which was RE.

    Upon further inspection, I checked with the subject teachers at Sixith Form and they told me that I could indeed do the choeen subjects I wanted to if I worked hard for them.

    However, changing subjects in January was considered late so now I am waiting to re-do Year 12 but with a twist.

    I want to drop the two equivalent A levels and resume RE in to Y13, and at the same time doing 3 A levels in Year 12, So I would have finished and gotten my A level in RE before I take the 2nd year exams for my 3 chosen A levels.

    Will this be possible? I know that unis want all exams done in the same period, ane me doing 3 A levels in the same period will perfectly reflect that need, however I don't want to drop my fourth subject or do 3 years upon it as I know doing the same subject/subjects for 3 years isn't considered great.

    Will RG unis accept this? And is this even possible? I do have a lot of reasons that show why and how I ended up in this situation.

    Wow you managed to make that s confusing, when in fact its simple.

    You need to talk to your school as to whether they will allow you to continue with RE, in any event you could do it as a private candidate.

    Yes RG unis will accept it but the only course that makes a real issue of 3 in 2 years is Medicine and maybe Dentistry. Unless its one of those then niche subjects, then it wont make a difference.
