Can I enter university with only AS Levels

Are there any universities that accept AS Levels only? I am not willing to take A2 subjects if it is not necessary, and I have 4 AS Level subjects and 8 O Levels.

Hello Sara,

No, it is not enough. You would not be able to manage an undergraduate degree with AS only.

A Levels are the best route into university but not the only route. You could consider an Access to HE course at college, but I think you should not abandon A levels.

Take a look at our A Level section here:


Good luck,
