Does it matter what my fourth AS-level is in, for physiotherapy? Watch

    I've just finished my AS-levels in year 12; I took maths, biology, English lit and photography. I should get 4 A grades and I want to study physiotherapy at uni. Even though I got A*s in all the sciences at GCSE, I didn't think I could cope with chemistry or physics at A-level. Will it matter that my fourth AS is in photography for places like Southampton, Liverpool and UEA? Thanks

    Not many people around on TSR at this time of day If photography is the one your dropping it really doesn't matter, lots of people do a slightly different subject as their fourth A level and still get into Russell group unis etc (not saying they're the only ones!) so really don't worry about it! They won't mind at all, in fact it might give you something a bit different to talk about although you may still be at a slight disadvantage to some, more 'sciencey' candidates- I don't know this though as I don't do the course! In short, you can't change it now and I don't see it being a problem for you so don't worry about it

    No its fine, you won't get many replies at 6am, most people haven't woken up yet mate. So be patient. You apply to uni with three predicted grades, as long as you do well in your 4th AS level, it doesn't really matter what AS level it is. That is as long as you meet any course requirements with the other 3 subjects, i.e if you are applying for economics you will want to do maths if applying to edinburgh for example.

    Best of luck, oh great pectorac
