    Hi, so a couple of weeks ago I received my AS results of AABC. I got the C in Chemistry so I plan to drop that one but I don't really mind about that. I'm really interested in studying English and History at the Cornwall campus but I didn't take History at AS (I took English, Politics, Biology and Chemistry). Can I still get in?

    Does the course require history?

    Edit: Just checked, they don't. Therefore you should be fine

    I had checked beforehand but I was really confused when I didn't see A level History on there because literally every other university I've looked at required it. :excited:

    Have you been to an open day?

    At the end of the day if they say they don't require it, they don't. Most applicants are likely to have it at least to AS, but as long as you explain why you didn't take it (in the reference) and why you want to study it, there shouldn't be a problem if you have the grades

    Good luck! It's a stunning main university, but im sure the Cornwall campus is just as lovely!

    I haven't been to an open day as unfortunately I live in Surrey so it would take me about 4 and a half hours to get there! To be honest, I don't have the greatest reason as to why I didn't take it - long story short it was a classic case of 'I had a terrible teacher at GCSE and didn't want to have another teacher like he was'. But, yeah, as long as I find a way to explain why I'd like to study it there then hopefully it'll all be fine

    Are you studying at the main campus then? If so, what are you studying??
