    Is it OK to do this? Seeing as im sitting my full Alevels in a year - AS in jan and A2s in may/june so obviously if i want to apply to go next sept then i wont have even sat my as exams before i apply. I presumed it would be ok but just looked at some old threads and am confused now - will i have to wait until next year in which case i might as well take two years to do the alevels anyway which i dont want to do

    If you're taking your A-levels in one year then yeah, I'd imagine this would be fine. It might just make it more difficult to decide where to apply/what for as you won't know your AS grades, so your predictions will be based on other factors. But go for it.

    Out of interest, why are you only taking one year to do A-levels? I'd imagine that'd be pretty difficult if you're doing three or four subjects, massive workload/stress.

    If you expect to have the required qualifications in time to meet any offer you might be made, ie by 31 August 2010, you can apply this year.

    However, you should consider the wisdom of trying to do your A2s in one year - this is a very heavy workload, and will add nothing to your application. Indeed it could disadvantage you, if you end up getting less good grades than you could have got if you have taken the full two years over it.
