Contact the MES. They'll provide you with the right information.

Yes. For the Higher School Certificate, you need to enter 5 subjects and since Cambridge International AS General Paper is a must, you can have the following combination:

  • 4 A Level subjects + GP
  • 3 A Levels + 1 AS Levels + GP
  • 2 A Levels + 2 AS Levels + GP

Therefore your combination would be fine provided you choose 2 main subjects as you already have 3 subs.
