    I'm pretty sure that they have to run the course, if you haven't completed it yet...

    Yeah RE is pretty easy (atleast what i'm doing, Philosophy of Religion) and just memorize the textbook i guess? I'm doing the AS over the summer, if that's any consolation OP

    I'm fairly sure 2 AS does not equal 1 A2 for medical schools so why do Maths + Physics AS?
    .... and you'd be taking on a lot with 2 A2, 2AS and a self study A2!!!
    I recommend...
    Finish Chem and Bio to A2
    Do RE A2 in your own time, ask the AS RE teacher for some help 1 to 1 to prepare for the exams, if you have a good relationship I'd think they would help.
    If you want to pick up an extra AS then personally I'd go for Maths, it would be relatively straightforward to complete it to A2 as a private candidate if you find you need a gap year to meet your goals.

    well definitely dont do english...

    ...anyway back to the thread id say do three a levels definitely but dont do re. do biology chemistry maths or, if not, biology chemistry psychology or something like that. the former would be better though

    this type of situation can happen and has in my college with some subjects. Best thing to do is to ask the college to enter you in it for the exam. Go online and get the specification, self teach yourself.

    btw how come you didn't do 4 AS levels? because i think you have already messed up ur chances of getting in if you haven't.
