    Unlikely. You're best off looking at foundation years - some universities will have courses for candidates who get high grades, but in unsuitable subjects.

    I am not sure how much any science except biology would help you, however I pretty sure you could go on and do it with those A levels. It is like economics at university, you do not need to have done any economics at A level as they reteach it when you go to study it. Perhaps consider taking biology/p.e. AS?

    AS?
    Are you talking about radiography? If so then is it female dominated?

    Talking for both and honestly it is quite a 50/50 split, you would be surprised.

    Are you doing Radiography? Radiography isn't remotely like Economics at university, of the 5 universities I applied ALL needed a science for radiography and four needed it at a grade B or above. I would concur that physiotherapy may be a 50/50 split but radiography most certainly isn't.

    edited to add, most universities receive in excess of 700 applications for 50 places, some work experience and at least a day in a radiography department is a mandatory part of the application process.

    Stay on another year and get a science ALevel and work experience or drop one if the above and do a full science in a year if you college will let you and it suits the timetable. I did, it was tough at times but I am nearly there now, I did applied science and all my choices accepted it including a Russell Group.

    You absolutely must get work experience for radiography, no idea about physiotherapy.
