    Your GCSE grades will probably be better than most successful applicants to Neuroscience. You won't need much work experience, since getting some in expensive labs and even finding the opportunity to do in the fist place will be difficult. Read in and around the subject, and show your passion for it. That's all you need.

    I haven't personally looked at neuroscience at ucl but I don't think a lot of unis look at your gcse. I mean most of the time they expect you to get a grade C or above in Maths and English but other than that I think you should be okay. If you haven't already, you should check their website for more information.
