So basically I’m year 12 but I’m supposed to be year 13. I’m currently doing AS Levels and I was wondering If any university would take me with 3 AS levels?

Serious? Do you reckon a uni will offer a course with a foundation year with 3 AS Levels?

Yeah... well 8 and an access to HE course. I really doubt you’ll get in with just 3. My best advice would be to contact universities and ask. Did you drop out after AS or are you thinking of dropping out?

Last year I was doing a linear course but I left mid way as I didn’t like it. This year I’m doing AS but I just wanna go off to uni if possible instead of doing a levels next year

Why would universities make an exception for you? 3 A-levels is the standard requirement for university entry. If you can't finish school what makes you think you'll be able to cope with university-level study?

^^ Exactly. Just stick it out for another year. Time flies and before you know it you'll have completed them... it will not only give you a much better chance of getting into uni but a sense of accomplishment and a lot more experience of working under pressure/dealing with stress/exams etc. I didn't complete the A2 because of extenuating circumstances not because I wanted to join a uni asap.

There’s not a chance you’ll be able to do so with just 3 AS levels, finish off your a-levels like everyone else who goes off to university. Don’t get the grades you want? That’s what foundation years are for, you can’t just leave half a year early to get into the uni experience ASAP

Which almost all require 3 A-levels or equivalent...

E.g. Surrey - CCC at A-level
https://www.surrey.ac.uk/foundation-courses

E.g. Liverpool Hope - 72 UCAS points (impossible to achieve through 3 AS-levels as even an A grade only gets you 20 points)
http://hope.ac.uk/foundationyearhopepark/

E.g. Nottingham - BBB for most courses, BCC for one
