I'm currently beyond torn about what I want to do at uni. I'm aware I've got about a year to decide and my A-level options - which are biology, chemistry, art and psychology- open up a selection of possible degrees. my initial choice was to pursue a career in neurology. With additional interests in medicine and psychology, I thought neuroscience would be something I may have a chance of thriving in. I am unaware of how competitive it is, as well as the rough requirements for GCSE and A-level. If I were to opt to do a degree in neuroscience, possible universities might be Bristol, York, Kings College London or Manchester - which I am aware are all very prestigious Russell Group Universities. I am predicted A's and A*s in my GCSEs and will get the results this summer, although I very much believe I'll have a few B's in maybe physics and perhaps even maths?
Do you think a small percentage of B's at GCSE level would impact my university appliance dramatically? I'm confident I will try and do better at A-level but I was just wondering?

I would strongly suggest looking into the difference between neurology and neuroscience as it will determine which course you need to apply for (i.e. medicine vs neuroscience/biomedical science).

As above - neurology is a medical speciality in hospitals. Neuroscience is basic, mainly lab-based science. Which is it you are interested in?
