Is it possible to get in without the required subjects????

    So I am looking to study nutrition and the grades required are ABB including chemistry and biology. I got AAAA in first year with maths, chemistry, biology and law and i dropped chemistry. I'm now predicted A*A*A. Considering I have higher predicted grades and an A in AS chemistry, would they even consider me, or is it a blanket no because I don't take A2 chemistry?

    email the department.

    Having just started on the KCL Nutrition course, I can tell you that everyone has their Chemistry A Level (or Access/International equivalent). It is probably the most important science to have for entry.
    Email the department though, and discuss your options. They're pretty helpful.

    Depends on the university but your best bet would be to ring up and ask. Sometimes they'll just reject you flat out if you don't have the subjects no matter what grades you got.
