    Currently the educational requirements are:
    35 ALIS points, gained from the best seven subjects at GCSE, or equivalent, which must include English language, mathematics and either a science subject or a foreign language.
    Minimum of 180 UCAS tariff points, acquired in separate subjects at AS and A level, or equivalent. These must include a minimum of two passes at A level, or equivalent, at grades A-E.

    With my 7 best subjects at GCSE, I have 37 points, problem is I didn't pass my Science, flopped and got a D which isn't a pass grade, I didn't take a foreign language either.
    I will have 240+ UCAS points, but my problem is will the D grade in science and not having taken a foreign language stop my application for Sandhurst?
    My plan is to go Sandhurst after my 3year course at University.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't know if it will stop you getting in. But if it does you could always retake your science GCSE externally if they'll accept that. It'll cost money though.
