I am planning on doing a degree in Psychology at Uni, but have checked most university requirements which state that an A level in science should be taken. In my GCSE's I achieved a Distinction* in BTEC Science diploma, and I am currently doing AS English literature, History & Psychology. Is it possible for me to do A level Biology next year as an AS alongside my current subjects? Or is my BTEC grade not acceptable? And is it still classed as Double science as I got two GCSEs for it? :confused: :confused: :confused:

Well it all depends really, ask your school or college if your qualifications are acceptable.

It depends on what your school/college require. In my college, we had to have at least CC in GCSE Double Science in order to do any science a level. :yes: You should be able to, with a distinction tbh (why didn't you do GCSE science?). Why'd you only take 3 AS's anyway?

Thank you, and my head of sixth form advised everyone to do 3 A levels, and pick up an AS next year. But, I'm planning to move for my A2 year. And they put us into our science classes due to our Year 9 SATS grades. However, I do regret not doing GCSE Science, as I would've felt more confident in taking exams.
