    Currently i'm studying AS biology AS chemistry and A2 History, both Biology and History are okay however chemistry is a real struggle for me, GCSE came easy to me but now A-level chemistry is beyond, i have resat already and got my mock paper back today with a 'U' grade, granted i didn't revise for it since iv'e got other exams coming and this one isn't for a few weeks but it's still a poor grade. I was looking to do, radiography or something similar(not sure which university though)

    So the question is how important is A2 chemistry on my application, i'm struggling to cope and i would much rather not do it if possible, how much of a disadvantage would it be if i dropped it at A2 and fast tracked another subject, however what subjects would be suitable for the application, iv'e tried to do some research but with very little information i'm desperate for some advice. If anyone could help in the slightest i would greatly appreciate it, thanks in advance!

    I dont know much about radiography but from looking on ucas it appears that some courses would accept you with just biology without chemistry but not all of them. I think you would need 3 A2's though so you may need to get a third subject fast tracked to A2 to meet requirements.

    Have a look at the course search so it will help you know exactly what to expect entry requirement wise

    Is there a way in which i can see the average grades that were accepted for the previous year, can't seem to find it on there. Or is it not possible ?

    Thats not shown on ucas i m afraid, but if you go on this website unistats and i think it shows you the ucas points they accepted last year. Also tells you about student satisfaction and stuff so good to help you pick uni choices
