I'm looking to apply for psychology at Reading in 2008. However, I was looking at grade requirements etc and noticed they 'prefer' B's in both science and maths. I only have C's in both.
My question is, how strict are they on this? Im predicted AABB and will be taking AEA in psychology. So will it really matter that I only got C's in maths and science?
Thanks for any replies.

Are you talking about GCSE grades?
Well, my advice would be to apply anyway - I have no idea how strict they are, but clearly they may be willing to accept Cs in science and maths. If they don't like it, they won't give you an offer.

Hey I applied to Reading for 07. I only have a C in GCSE maths and a DD in science and they accepted me. They only actually introduced the B in Maths thing last year cos when I first got the prospectus they only asked for a C in Maths. I know this cos like you, this was one of my selection criteria. I'm sure they would accept you, but there's obviously other factors which will influence their decision. If you email most unis and explain your situation they will give you an honest answer about how likely it is that they will accept you, but I think Reading should.
Hope that helps
