what university courses will my subjects allow me to do? watch

    • Thread Starter

    i have just started year 12.
    i have taken biology, chemistry, music b-tech and english literature.

    i am specifically looking for a science course in one of the top 10 universities in the U.K.

    i just wanna hear suggestions so if anyone can comment of this, then that would be great.


    By studying two science subjects, most of the top ten universities will most likely consider you seriously if you applied for a science course, although some may find the BTEC Music questionable. English Lit is also a facilitating subject and will offer you variety, which may be helpful in your application but your subject courses may be more likely to be considered if you replaced the BTEC Music with something like Maths or Physics, which would help strengthen your application for science courses. However, if music is something you enjoy, then you should stick to what you like; your subject choices should stand a good chance if you meet the required grades. Good luck!
