    Basically, I'm thinking when you need to choose what A levels you want to do could you go to university open days to get an idea of what kind of course you want to do and if many year 11s go to open days or is it just sixth formers? For example for some animal science degrees or vet med you pretty much have to take mostly sciency a levels but what if you took these in order to do that course but when it came to applying you realized you want to do another degree which required other specific A levels. Would student from year 11 feel out of place?

    I wouldn't feel out of place. I think its great that you're already looking into what degree and thus, career you're interested in. If you really feel out of place just take a few friends with you; I don't think the universities will mind. They'll more likely be impressed. You can even attend the seminars

    You probably could, but there wouldn't really be much point. I found that a lot of the unis focussed on the application process and writing a personal statement, and stuff about finance that wouldn't really be relevant for you. There were also a couple of unis that did taster lectures and activities that tied into A Level study.

    But, there are entry requirement details on the unis websites that say which A Levels are needed, and you can even find detailed information on modules at the uni on some of their websites, to get a good idea of whether or not the course is for you
