im currently taking a criminology diploma, politics, and psychology. by the end of year 12 I would have gotten half of the grade in criminology due to it being a diploma, but my politics course I hate so much. I want to at the end of year 12 chose another subject but continue and finish my other two courses at the expected time. can I do this? just redo one level but continue the other? if so will this affect my university applications? if not, if I redo the whole of the year 12, will that affect my uni applications?i know this is bit complicated but I'm just really stuck

Yes you can - but it's best to talk to your sixth from about this as they will know what they could offer instead and whether they would let you stay to complete the new 2 year course etc.

Yeah you probably can and no i don't think unis care. my best friend is retaking year 12 and changed all his subjects but the college they were at didn't allow this so they had to start year 12 in another school. i think this is very college specific, some are very accommodating and others won't have it. ask your tutor or head of year what to do. it's done quite often to be honest so don't worry too much.

some of the prestigious unis only care if you take your a levels twice and don't accept these applicants.
