    I understand you must get this a lot on here, but I am looking in to studying Neuroscience at Oxford - or Cambridge. The requirements on their website state A*AA is needed at A Level. I am going to be starting an Access to Science course in September, and would love to study at Oxbridge after. Is there a chance of me getting in? What are my best options. I can get in to Kings College, but I would prefer Oxbridge.

    Yes. I will study Natural Sciences, and specialise in Neuroscience in the third year.

    I really know nothing about access qualifications, but if no-one answers here, email the oxford and Cambridge admissions departments to ask what their policies on it are. They're usually really helpful

    That's what both unis say about Access diplomas.

    Definitely email the admissions departments for more specific assistance.
