Must A-Levels be taken in the same year?Watch
hypothetically speaking, if I were to take Maths and Biology as A-Levels and begin Chemistry the following year, would this prevent me from applying to some universities?
When you have decided which Unis you might eventually apply to, just email them and check what their policy is and if they will allow any exceptions.
So, earlier this year I returned to college to take my GCSE's as I missed year 11 due to sudden ill health. I applied for English, Maths, Chemistry and Biology. I was accepted onto all but one, Chemistry. Assuming I get the grades needed to move onto A-Level Math and Biology, I still need to spend the next academic year taking GCSE Chemistry. This will lead to a year gap between A-Level results for Math and Biology, and Chemistry. Granted, this is entirely dependent on academic performance and may not be relevant come results day. But hypothetically speaking, if I were to take Maths and Biology as A-Levels and begin Chemistry the following year, would this prevent me from applying to some universities? I have read that various universities require A-Levels to be taken in the same year as it displays an individuals ability to handle larger workloads. So, what I am asking is wether I should continue to take A-Level Maths and Biology, and to take Chemistry in the following year. Or, whether I should wait a year and take all three at the same time. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
