    I'm applying to sociology at Queens university in Belfast and the grades required are as follows:

    A-level: BBB or BBC plus B (AS-level). There are no specific subject requirements at A-level.

    My grades are currently BBC and I have one B at AS Level but it's not in sociology. I got my only B at AS Level in Geography. Anyway my question is, should it matter that it's not in sociology? I'm assuming it shouldn't matter because it just says BBC plus B (AS Level) but doesn't mention that it has to be in sociology? :confused:

    It says there are no specific A-level subject required, ergo no specific A-levels are required.

    well thats by no means a bad grade. Some people don't even have sociology as an A level so it will be looked upon favourably . I'd say you have no trouble at all

    Don't mean to be a meanie (see what I did there ), but how will it be looked upon favourably if sociology isn't a favourable subject?
