No problem. Also, I don't think maths is needed for most courses, but you'd definitely need to have other science A Levels

You do not need A Level Maths to study it at University although I would recommend it since regardless of what you're going to specialise in, it's likely that you're going to have to take at least some modules with a reasonable amount of physics and maths. If you're interested in going into physical oceanography, you definitely should take A Level Maths. If you're more interested in the biological side of oceanography then it may be of lesser importance.

Southampton is the first university that comes to mind for Oceanography, they've got a very good reputation for the subject, partially because the National Oceanography Centre is (partially) based in Southampton. Oceanography isn't a very common degree but a fair number of other places offer it, such as Liverpool, Plymouth and UEA. It's also possible to go into Oceanography without doing a degree in it. For instance, if it's physical oceanography you're interested in, a lot of physics courses would give you a very good background for getting into the subject. My course also has a good amount of physical oceanography in it (Earth Sciences).

Hi I've been looking at doing oceanography at university too. I've looked at Southampton, Bangor, Plymouth and Liverpool. At Liverpool, it is combined with either geology or physical geography. I ruled out Liverpool, I wasn't too keen on the courses. Southampton looks really good in my opinions. The open day really sold the course. The only issue is that the entry requirements are rather high, ABB. Bangor has a large selection there are three which appeals to me. All of the entry requirements are BBC there I think. Plymouth seams lower again, it seems to be very hands on from what I can tell, they ask for 112-104 tariff points (2017 entry). All of the entry requirements as for a minimum of 2 sciences, which includes maths and geography (not necessarily any in particular). They do however state that you need to have a grade C or higher in both English and maths at GCSE.

I've applied for oceanography at Southhampton as well as Marine Geography at Cardiff which also looks very similar, and apparently Cardiff is meant to be good too.
I've also applied for ocean science at Plymouth, which is the only uni I've managed to visit for an open day. The course sounded really interesting and they seem to have very good facilities.

And maths doesn't seem to be essential.
