You havnt gotten your predictions yet? D: AAB.
Have you tried emailing the admissions staff for city and asking them about it? I know some unis allow it and some don't. You should definitely check with them

What A levels are you taking?

Your doing all sciences! Surely that should be an advantage since they only ask for 2. I do Bio, Chem and geography :/ I know they prefer maths but I just can't handle it lol

Not really. If you are not doing bio then you have to do 3. I did bio first time didn't like it and failed. Find physics easier though. Maths probably my strongest subject

You just have to ask yourself it you really want to do Optometry though if you dont like bio... Its a healthcare/medically related degree and there are TONS of biology, clinical skills, very little physics (basic optica), almost no chemistry and no maths (apart from gcse level trigonometry)
I dont want to deter you but just make sure you are not on the wrong career path.It would be silly to spend 3 years, 27 grand in fees and hating what you do... Have you considered Medical engineering or bio/chemical engineering ?

Yes your point is valid.

I would say i have an interest in it but i doubt i will take it at university, thanks for you're assistance.

Hey there guys!

What grades do you think would be minimum for optometry?
I am predicted an A in maths and 2 B's in Chemistry and Biology.

How much work experience has everyone got also? Would 1-2weeks be enough?

Thanks
