Sorry, that isn't a very good title, just to grap someone's attention...to answer my query:

So I have applied to four universities in the UK to study Physics; Nottingham, Leeds, Leicester and Liverpool. The problem is that I am only doing 2 A-levels.
I am predicted As for math and Physics A-level, and B's for Psychology and DT.
I started off with Math, Physics, Chemistry, Psychology in year 11. Dropped Chemistry midway, and discontinued Psychology to year 13. To make up for the missing A-level, I tried to undertake a whole A-level of DT, however seeing the huge amount of coursework, my teachers and myself were in question of it being realistic. Hence, I dropped the A2 and continued with just the AS.
Leicester replied saying that it would help my case if I indicated a reason why I only have 2 A-levels. Would the reason I mentioned above prove to be sufficient in being an explanation, or would it be frowned upon. Thank you.

They probably want to see that it wasn't your fault.

Sounds like this is your fault and you should have picked a more realistic subject.
