Hi everyone. I'm an A LEVEL student from Pakistan and I am studying privately. I have chosen to study history, geography, sociology and psychology but now I am having doubt about taking all 4 subjects. Thing is that I am trying to do my A Levels in one year and I know we need four subjects at AS and three at A. So my question is whether it is okay if I drop one subject . Is it possible to take only the AS components of the subject without taking the A Level components instead of dropping the subject altogether.

It is possible to take only the AS, yes. If you're doing it in only one year instead of two, please do only take 3 subjects! 4 will be too much. And there's no requirement at all to have AS qualifications, just 3 A levels for UK unis

Hiya, I do A-Levels at school and our school lets us take 4 subjects for the first year and then drop a subject in the second year so in the end we have 3 A-Levels and an AS for the other subject. Wow doing A-Levels in a year sounds very hard! I go to quite a good school and lots of people are struggling so if you do it in a year it would be a huge time commitment.

Lots of schools in the UK only offer 3 to do straight to A level now anyway

Are you living in Pakistan right now? I know that in Pakistan the A levels are modular whereas in the UK they have been changed to linear. Either way, i’m pretty sure u can drop a subject after completing it’s AS, and not carry on with it to A level. In fact most people at school in Pakistan take 4 AS levels, and then drop one in their second year.
