    At my college you can do 3 AS levels if you got 4 GCSE's, but you have to do a GCSE on the side....

    I don't know anyone (yet) that got less than 5 though....

    Loads of people in my year (year 12) got in to sixth form without the 5 A*-C requirements. Unfortunately, most of them haven't lasted the whole year, and if they have, they haven't done great at the end of the year.

    But if you promise to work really hard at your AS's, they might let you in, it really does depend on how strict the school is with their entrees

    I know someone from my school whose only grades were BCC, the rest were all Us, but he's got into the Brit school so he's alright... My school's very strict about that, but some higher education colleges nearby do fast-track one year A Levels alongside GCSEs; you could try those.

    I did; I've never been to school, and basically had to do a short-course which offered only four GCSEs. I managed to persuade my school to let me take my A-Levels; I've done alright.

    i've got a question, let's say i choose french, english and geography for as-level...in A2, do i still have to do the same ? or can i add more subjects ?
    Also my teacher advised me to take maths gcse higher, if i pass it, could i then take a-level maths during the second year ?

    I am still fairly new to the whole english education system because i lived and studied in france previously.

    You would have to stick with the same subjects if you wanted to receive a full A-Level (A2) in the said subject... There is nothing to stop you taking up another subject in your second year...
