    I want to study Psychology at degree level, I'm currently at AS Level doing Psychology, History, English Lit and Art.
    I'm predicted 4 A's in my AS's, and I got these for GCSE:

    Art: A*
    English Lit: A
    English Lang: A
    Core Science: A
    Additional Science: A
    Maths: A
    History: B
    Advanced Science: C
    Spanish: C

    Although in my defence I missed my Spanish exam because I injured myself and had to go to hospital just before it, and after I took my history exam (the next day) I was told I still had too much morphine in my system and probably didn't work to my full potential - I was predicted A's/A*'s in both.

    I want to go to Durham, Bath, Exeter, Nottingham or Newcastle, am I likely to get in with these grades, and seeing that I don't have biology or maths as an A level? (I might take up biology as an AS next year).


    You should check the subject requirements in the individual university websites. They may be happy with A in IGCSE Maths and Psychology as Science.

    It may be a problem with 1 science. Saying that, I got into UCL with just psych but things have changed in the last 3 years since I applied.

    But the uni choices seem decent, maybe pick one that's more of a backup?
