    Hello people!

    I might be joining a sixth form soon, if not definatley next year. I am wondering which A levels to take, obviously chemistry is a must, but what else? I had in mind: Chemistry, biology, law and something else. But what would you need to take to become a forensic scientist? And what grades would you need to get once you finished the A levels, heres the uni:

    Nice course! I was once interested in doing Forensic Science but I decided not to in the end. I remember having a talk with my Science teacher and she joked that 90% of the people in the class would be fans of CSI (the tv show).

    I looked here and looked under 'skills and qualities required' and perhaps see which A Levels would tick the boxes.

    I'd do Chemistry, Biology, Maths and English Language or Literature. For international offers they include a requirement in Maths so it might be good to show your ability at A Level. I'd also do English to show that you are well rounded and can do things like report writing.

    "A/AS level 280 points (3.5 A level equivalents) inc BC at A level"

    It seems like they want something like BCDc overall. To get 280 UCAS points with 3.5 A Levels as well as including the stated A Level grades it would have to be that. 100+80+60+40=280. But just try to get the best that you can, don't think simply because of what I wrote that you can not work as hard as you would :P

    Most people working in forensic science don't have a degree in forensic science as Kent offers it, but have often a chemistry degree or another science.
