    I know that some universities accept Access courses for a 3 year undergraduates degree, but from what I've been told, Birmingham don't accept that (for the sciences anyway.) I would like to study at Birmingham, but I can't do A Levels as I'm too old for pretty much every college to accept me for an a level course, they all suggested I take an access course. I could never afford to pay for A levels privately, especially not chemistry as the practical exams can bump the exam fees up to over £1000.

    Do I need to wait another year until I receive my final grades to apply for a chemistry degree with foundation year for Birmingham?

    This would be for uni entrance in 2017, having had received my results in 2017, after starting my course in 2016.

    No I applied during sixth form and got in with a conditional offer, so I assume they'll just give you conditions to meet
