A Level advice

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all! I'm hoping someone would be able to help me. I'm looking in to doing a BSc (Hons) Radiology Diagnostics course at University. First I need to get some A Levels behind me. I was thinking of taking Biology, Chemisty and Pyscology. Are there the best A Levels to be taking up? Obviously I want to get this right and don't want to waste my time. ANY help would be appreciated! Thank you.

    The entry requirements for Unis are quite varied - many are quite general, and ask for A levels such as biology, chemistry, maths and physics. I haven't seen any that mention psychology - most don't count it as a science - how set on doing it are you? If the answer that is not very, it might be more beneficial to do something like maths.

    Thank you for the reply. I tried to avoid Maths as it frightens me! Ive always been quite interested in Psychology, but if it doesn't benefit me then I should probably think again. Certain colleges won't accept me for A Levels (due to age) so looks like I'll have to do an Access Course.
