Hey there, I’ve been needing some help for a while regarding post 16 options.

I’ve been browsing some colleges and found some colleges I really like, the downside is they do AS Levels and apparently they are only equivalent to half an A Level? If I was to take them what would I take in my second year? I’d rather do A Levels but if that’s the only option I need to know clearly what I can do after the first year of the AS Level.

Thanks,

Aaliyah.

AS is the first year of A Levels. A2 is the second year. if the college does AS exams it just means that they do real exam board exams as the end of the year.
say you take 4 A Levels. you do all the AS exams at the end of year 12 and get your results a at a results day. then you get to choose if you want to take all 4 A Levels onto A2 or drop one and carry on with 3. if you carry on with 3 you'll then have 3.5 A Levels.

it's nothing to worry about AS is basically year 12 content and when you do those then you do A2. the whole A Level is AS and A2 combined.

AS is just the first year of A levels. You'd still complete the full A level over 2 years
