I'm an international student who is going to be studying Engineering and Science for foundation year in the UK. However I also want to do my A-Levels, as I am planning on transferring to a higher ranking university after I complete the course. Can I sit the A-Levels exams while studying Foundation???

Technically yes, but I imagine it would be very difficult for you. You have to remember your foundation year will be a full time course, so to try and put enough time into that and A level revision would be quite a lot. You might also have to consider you end up in the position of failing the foundation year and not getting the required A-levels so you're in exactly the same position as you are now.

A better first approach might be to see if your 'higher ranking' university would accept you transferring over just after completing the foundation year.

Another approach might be to do your A-levels (at home?) without doing the foundation year at all.

Are you doing an International Foundation program (IFP) or a Year 0 of a full degree?
