    Hi, so I just got my AS results of AABC with the A's in maths and chemistry, B in Biology and C in Geography. I was wondering if these results were capable of receiving offers from Russell group Uni's such as Birmingham and Nottingham etc. Also, could my lack of A-level physics in any way hold me back if I was to successfully get on to the course? Thanks

    As you know for Chemical Engineering, Maths and Chemistry are crucial as your first two A-Levels. For the third one, in terms of your applicant, Physics is definitely the ideal choice but Biology will do just as fine

    In the view of studying at Uni, it might be helpful for you to quickly flick through the syllabus but nothing more than that would be needed,

    I should imagine that if you got AAB at A-Level with those three subjects, it would be plenty good enough for the Russell Unis.

    Ok thanks for that, that's reassuring! Do you study Chemical engineering?

    Nope, I do Aeronautics. I never really liked Chemistry, mainly because of a bad experience of it during GCSEs. All the alkenes and then all the alkanes...
