    Hi

    Bit confused here - My postcode is flagged as having a low participation in higher education which is one of the factors that need to be met in order to be considered for a Foundation Year.

    I have 5 A*, 4 A and a B at GCSE and my AS subjects are Biology, Physics, Maths, Computer Science. (Comp Sci probably isn't seen as a science by most universities). As my options are mainly science options, can I still apply for Foundation Year courses for Medicine as I do not have chemistry? Specifically UEA and Manchester.

    Thanks for your help

    Edit: Likely AS Grades will be AAAB this year (AAAA best case)
    A2 most likely A*AA (Best case A*A*A)

    Do you reckon I could e-mail them, explain my options and see if they will consider? The thing is it is because of my stupid options choices rather than the actual grades.

    I highly doubt it, they state on the website ' If you have an A2 subject combination of Maths, Physics and Biology you will not be considered for the Foundation Year' and even if you take comp sci instead of one of them you still dont meet the entry criteria
