Diluting QC

At my institution we usually use levels 1 and 3 for routine chemistry assays however one assay the level 3 falls above our AMR. We have decided to dilute that level for that assay instead of purchasing another QC level just for one assay. Does anyone else do this or has done this? is it acceptable practice?
