Do you have to have GCSE results to take ALEVELS or can you do them both at the same year

the grade boundaries for each subject vary. It may be worth talking with said teachers/ professors about exempting if you've studdenly had an urge to study those subjects. I know a girl at my last school who got onto a level maths with out the nesesary grades BC she realised she needed it for her degree. other than that I can't help you much BC I was never in that situation. good luck

There are no absolute rules about what you take when so if you're taking exams as a private candidate you can do exactly what you want, when. (e.g. A level maths at 6, and GCSE at 22 although that would be stupid).

If you're studying by yourself, there's not much point starting the A level until you have a really good understanding of the GCSE content - but if you are taking the A level there is no point re-sitting the GCSE exam as it will have no value if replaced by an A level.

If you want to study A levels at a college then they will have some entry requirements, e.g. a 6 at GCSE Chemistry in order to do Chemistry A level.
