I was just wondering if, for most uk (top) unis, for a classics course, would i need to study greek? My school doesnt do it at gcse or a level which is rather annoying
would i be at a disadvantage if i didnt study greek before uni?
EDIT: i do take Latin at gcse, and i'm probably going to take it at a level

As you haven't had a chance to do Greek at your college you shouldn't be put at a disadvantage

Only some unis require both and that is very rare. Most don't require either language, with the rest only requiring one. So you'd be absolutely fine not having Greek

My school doesn't offer Greek at any level, but I'm still applying for classics. Basically all unis will have a fast-track latin and greek module for students with neither language

Most (all?) unis these days don't require Greek as a prerequisite for Classics. Greek is not offered as a school subject in Scotland so all Scottish universities can't require Greek, and most English uni's will only require Latin, although some might require you to do a Greek language summer school before you start.
