    So I'm planning on doing physical geography at uni and I checked out Newcastle's course details and I was like oh wow this is great, until it said "we require another science". I used to do biology, but due to getting a bad predicted grade I had to pick up a btec. I do geography alongside english lit and have recently finished a biology/geography related EPQ, will it be possible to accept me even though I don't have another science, or is it a waste of a choice?

    Thanks

    There's no harm in emailing Newcastle's Geography department to check but if their entry requirements ask for another science A Level and you don't have one, I would not expect them to give you an offer unfortunately, sorry.
