    I recently chose to drop an AS-Level meaning that I am only doing 2 AS-Levels and Welsh Bacc.
    I wish to take A-Level and AS-Level sociology, but I will only have one year to do it.
    Would I be allowed to do both the AS and A-Level exams in the same year? How would I go about doing this?
    Thank you.

    For A levels with an English board there is no point - just do the A level exams as the AS ones are worthless if you then do the A level. However, I assume you're taking exams with WJEC where i think the AS still contributes to the A level in which case you just enter for both sets of exams.

    How you get lessons in both at the same time is another question.

    I'm planning to self-teach the subject. Would universities see the fact that I have no AS and look down upon it though? Or does it literally not make an impact?

    In England most students don't take the AS if they are going to take the A level so it would be fine.
