    I left high school in 2014 with my GCSEs and went to college for about 4 months before leaving as I thought I'd chosen the wrong path. I then went back to another college in 2015 and left after 4 months because we really weren't getting taught much but also for personal reasons. I want to try again, third time lucky I hope. I have dyspraxia so even though the website does tell me what I need to know, I have a hard time understanding the layout and wording, and I've had no help when reaching out to the Uni itself. I wanted to do Zoology and German Studies but I've been told that that is not a combination they offer. I also thought about doing Zoology with a Modern Language, as both German and Zoology are important to me. I just don't really understand the layout of the Entry Requirements page. It says A level requirements, GCSE, Btec .etc. but I don't know whether that means I need all qualification stated or if the GCSE grades stated (english and maths C or above) are the minimum I'd need to apply. I feel really stupid for asking but if anyone can help me I'd really appreciate it

    You're going to need GCSE's plus some sort of third level qualification. Doesn't necessarily have to be A Levels, but something equivalent to it, like an Access course for example.
