    Currently I am studying A-level Sociology with a predicted grade of an A, already have a Merit for the BTEC Diploma in Business and planning to get at least an A in A-level Russian, also I'm studying Subsidiary Diploma of BTEC Sports (1 year only) with a predicted grade of a Distinction but unfortunately - that's it, this is all my A-levels. In fact, I've been planning to fill in an "access to Leeds" form and apply to "International Relations and A Russian, also I'm a native Russian speaker but I'm unsure whether I should mention that or not?
    And also I have been planning to apply for the "International Relations and Sociology" at Uni of Birmingham, so, what do you think, any chances of receiving an offers from these universities?

    I don't want to comment on your chances of admission because I have no idea, and nobody else will know either. I suggest you contact the relevant admission tutor and speak to them about your chances. Some universities will accept your Russian A level and some won't, if in doubt, ask.

    If you're interested in IR, sociology and Russia then you might like UCL's Politics, Sociology and East European Studies degree.
