    Hello!
    I am currently studying A-Levels in Classical Civilisation, Chemistry and Physics.
    I was wondering if these subjects would allow me to study Classical Studies, Greek and Arabic at St Andrews, as it is pretty much my dream course!
    Also at GCSE I only got...
    English: (Language)A (Literature)C
    Maths: C
    Double Science: B
    and then 1A, 4Bs & 2Cs.
    I am studying Greek in a school club but won't be able to sit any exams in it.

    I would appreciate any help on this subject!

    Thank you for your help, but I was hoping for some advice on whether they would only go for applicants with A-Levels in languages since most of mine are sciences.

    You could always apply for admission for classical studies and then take up Greek and Arabic as your additional modules when you get there - or apply for classical studies and Greek, and take up Arabic as your third module. Most universities offer Greek from scratch anyway, and you would be able to demonstrate commitment to it in your PS by attending a club. BUT I have heard that doing Arabic from scratch is a massive amount of work, and you might find learning two languages simultaneously pretty tough.
    (for more on modules see here http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/study/ug/options/flexible/ - commonly in years 1 and 2 people study 3 subjects, whatever they were admitted for, and it's also common to switch main subject if you find something you like better)
