what science degrees are available for someone who only has chemistry a level? most seem to need at least two science subjects at a level

Those with a foundation year, for one.

Beyond that, I'm unsure.

It doesn't necessarily depend on the course, it depends on the uni.

But yeah as Athematica suggested, there are foundation degrees too.

Plenty of chemistry degrees only specify chemistry A level. Nottingham's chemistry course page doesn't list any other sciences as requirements, neither does Birmingham's, Southampton says other sciences/maths are preferable but not necessary to get an offer, and Newcastle are the same and that's only from a quick search- I'm sure you can find more options.

What other subjects do you have? The only one I know of which requires just one science subject is biology/biological sciences, but you have the wrong science for that.

I have English lit and Classics A level and an As level in Physics (which is a really bad grade). I've seen some chemistry degrees where you only need chemistry a level, so i'm hoping for something like that

I see. :holmes:

I would suggest you take some time (a gap year, even) to figure out what you really want to do at university, doing an additional A Level if necessary. Given the expense of university, it's not really worth settling for whatever science subject (it's not enough to want to do 'a science') you can get into. Only do chemistry if you really want to do chemistry.
