Can I apply to university without AS Levels?
I have failed my AS but I am still moving on to A2 so I will do all my A Level exams for AS and A2 at the end of year 13. Can I apply to university with no AS grades?
Nothing to stop you applying this year – lots of applicants (notably, but not only, from other countries) don’t have AS. The key thing will be the application telling a plausible story about why you failed your AS and why you will be more successful with your A2.
