    hey, i am just wondering if it is still possible for me to go to university to study astronomy. I am confused about my results, since in the actual entry requirements uni of Edinburgh require AAAA is there still a chance for me to get into uni if i got AB in maths and french at the end of 5th year and i'm resitting physics and chemistry, i'm also doing AH maths. Say i get AAB (respectively) is there still a chance for me getting into uni.


    Wether you get an offer or not will be dependant on what you got in 5th year more or less, not what you think you can get in 6th year. The entry requirements work like so roughly; if you get AAAA in 5th year including maths and physics then you should get an unconditional offer. If you get less than that then you will be considered for a conditional offer which would depend on the subjects you do in 6th year. Also the closer you got to the AAAA in 5th year makes you more likely to receive a conditional too obviously.

    There are other universities that do astronomy/astrophysics too like Glasgow and St Andrews though in the latter case, it's somewhat more competitive than Edinburgh. You get 5 choices on your UCAS form anyway so look around at the other 5 universities in Scotland that offer physics too.
